Description
Redding first was secured for settlement in 1714 by John Read, a lawyer and land speculator who obtained a large grant from a Native American chief named Chicken. The General Assembly had the land sold at auction, and in 1767 the area became incorporated as a town and was named for the speculator. The area is rich in mineral deposits, and a number of mines have prospered nearby.
