The Buzz: Three steam whistles in downtown Redding as tribute to city’s past 02/06/2021

Published February 17, 2021

It’s a blast to the past.

Outside the new Market Center building in downtown Redding is a trio of steam whistles at the corner of Butte and Market streets.

About 20 feet high, the public art will not only be seen, but also heard.

Every Friday at 5 p.m., the whistles will blare, signaling the end of the work week and the start of downtown’s weekend nightlife.
