The Superior Court of Siskiyou County was previously located in multiple structures, with the original dating from 1857. Facilities were overcrowded, had significant security deficiencies and severe functional and ADA access deficiencies, lacked courtrooms for all judicial officers, and experienced flooding each rainy season. The new courthouse replaced the old courthouse and the Eddy Building Annex.

The new Yreka Courthouse is a modern and secure, five-courtroom, two-story building of 67,459 gross square feet in the City of Yreka. It sits on a site across the street from the former courthouse. The property is approximately 2.4 acres and provides 109 public parking spaces. This new facility provides a full range of court service to all residents of Siskiyou County.
