I can't live without my annual trip to Weed, California
The town of Weed gets its name from the founder of the local lumber mill, Abner Weed, who discovered that the area's strong winds were helpful in drying lumber. In 1897, Abner Weed bought the Siskiyou Lumber and Mercantile Mill and 280 acres of land in what is now the City of Weed, for the sum of $400. By the 1940s Weed boasted the world's largest sawmill.
Weed is mentioned in John Steinbeck's novel Of Mice and Men.
Weed's official city motto is “Weed like to welcome you.”
(Un)official Weed City Motto: “But only if you brought some.”
