++ The present Colusa County boundaries are far from where it started. Originally Colusa occupies territory that roughly covered Glenn County. The southern six miles of the original Colusa County are not the northern 6 miles of Colusa County.
Named after two Mexican land grants; Coluses (1844) and Colus (1845). The word is taken from the name of an Indian tribe living on the west side of the Sacramento River.
