=== History ===
The Greenville Agency was established in 1890 as an Indian school. It was purchased by the Government in 1897 and made an agency. It had jurisdiction over American Indians in Butte, Plumas, Sierra, and Yuba Counties, California. In 1918, all but Plumas County were transferred to the [[Reno_Indian_Agency_Reno Indian Agency (Nevada)|Reno Agency]].
With the abolishment of the [[Roseburg_Indian_Agency_Roseburg Indian Agency (Oregon)|Roseburg Agency]] in 1918, the Indians in the Umpqua Valley in southern Oregon, and those living near Susanville and Redding, California, were added to the Greenville jurisdiction. In 1923, Greenville became a subagency of the [[Sacramento_Indian_Agency_Sacramento Indian Agency (California)|Sacramento Agency]].<ref>Guide to Archival Holdings at NARA's Pacific Region (San Francisco) -- Record Group 75.
