County Seat: Colusa
Year Organized: 1850
Square Miles: 1156

Colusa county is one of the original counties formed shortly after the creation of California in 1850. Colusa was named after two Mexican land grants, Coluses (1844) and Colus 1845). The name of the county in the original state legislative act was spelled Colusi, and often misspelled in newspapers and other places as Coluse. The word is derived from the name of an Indian tribe living on the west side of the Sacramento River. In 1854, Colusi soon became Colusa on legal documents when the county seat moved from Monroeville to Colusa.  Sections of Colusa County were given to  Tehama County in 1856 and to Glenn County in 1891.
