Brief information about Paradise

Paradise is an incorporated town in Butte County, California. It is located in the Sierra Nevada foothills above the northeastern Sacramento Valley.
The town is statistically classified within the Chico Metropolitan Area.
The first post office was established at Paradise in 1877; it closed for a time in 1911, but was re-established later that year, when the post office at Orloff was closed.[11] Paradise incorporated in 1979. For many years, the Butte County Railroad operated trains along the ridge, serving mines and sawmills.
A legend persists that the town was named because it was the home of the Pair o’ Dice Saloon, an idea supported by the fact than an official 1900 railroad map referred to the town as “Paradice”. However, according to folklorist Barbara Mikkelson of Snopes.com, there is no documentation of such an establishment, nor an explanation of how the map’s spelling of the town originated. Gene Sylva, a former mayor of the nearby town of Oroville, has stated that the saloon story is false, and that the true etymology of the town’s name is traced to his great-great-grandfather, William Pierce Leonard, who named the town on a summer day in 1864, after a hot and dusty ride from the Sacramento Valley. Arriving at his sawmill while the staff were on break, Leonard “took a deep breath of the cool, clean air, and exclaimed, ‘Boys, this is paradise.'” Mikkelson, however, suggests that Sylva’s explanation may also be “pleasingly inventive historical fiction”, but surmises that the town was probably named for it being a pleasant place to live.
The town of Paradise is 10 miles (16 km) east of Chico and 85 miles (137 km) north of Sacramento. The population was 26,283 as of 2013, down from 26,408 at the 2000 census.
It spreads out on a wide ridge between deep canyons formed by the west branch of the Feather River to the east and Butte Creek to the west. The Paradise area extends northward from Paradise to include the unincorporated town of Magalia, and such smaller communities as Stirling City, eleven miles north. Elevation of the town is 1,778 feet (542 m), according to the GNIS. The town is approximately eight miles east of the city of Chico, and ten miles north of the Oroville area.
