SUSANVILLE, Calif. ? The Susanville Indian Rancheria announced the purchase of 875 acres of land in Lassen County Calif. on March 28. The property was purchased from a Yuba City-based businessman for an undisclosed amount.

"We look forward to the vast opportunities this additional land presents," said Tribal Chairman Ike Lowry. "Not only will we be able to meet the growing housing needs of our members for generations to come, but in purchasing land that belonged to or forebearers, we are able to preserve cultural sites important to the Four Tribes of the Susanville Rancheria."

The tribe is considering building a gas station, mini-mart or truck stop to stimulate the local economy.
