Just out of curiosity, generally speaking do the people of Redding, CT know of the existence of Redding, CA?

And to reciprocate, I'd say unless someone really made the effort to find out, no one in Redding, CA knows about Redding, CT. It just doesn't really show up on the map.... which I have a feeling is just the way you folks like it.

Redding is in th central valley of northern California- roughly 150 miles north of Sacramento. Hot dry summers- with cool winters and rain.

Has grown in recent years by e Bay area residents seeking cheaper housing.

I'm well aware of Redding, CA. I live in CT and didn't know there was a Redding, CT.

I was aware of both. If you're going for sound and not spelling, there's also Reading, Pennsylvania.

Skytrekker, was that a Freudian typo? or an actual pun? Either way, a modest little seeing that.

Interesting that Redding 'It's-not-as-hot-as-Yuma!' CA would be known to a CTer but not Redding CT. Which again I suspect is just the way Reddingites like it.

Any actual residents of Redding CT out there on this board?

Thanks all, for the replies to this not quite substantive thread, but sometimes you just have a question you'd like to get answered.

Here's another question to throw into the pot. Is Redding CA named for Redding CT?

For example, we have Norwalk, CT, which lent its name to Norwalk, OH, which lent its name to Norwalk, IA. Norwalk, CA, was named by a postmaster so in all likelihood it was named for one of the other Norwalks above.

No one knows for sure how Redding, CA got its name. However, the most likely explanation is that Redding, CA was named after a land agent of the Southern Pacific Railroad which created the town when they put the RR through in 1872.

that was in fact a typo

Interesting to know however that the SF bay area has in fact seen a net loss in population since 2000.
