 Yuba City, Sutter County California

Yuba City, Sutter County, PO and County seat, 50 miles north of Sacramento, is situated on the west bank of Feather River, opposite the mouth of the

Yuba. In the rush to California following the discovery of gold were many enterprising speculators, who, foreseeing the greatness of the future, sought out the favorable localities for new Boston, New York, Cincinnati, and Chicago, and there laid out their cities. Yuba City was one of these, and as the site was supposed to be exempt from overflow, and at the head of navigation on Feather River, it was regarded as the future commercial center of the northern section of the State.

But Marysville, on the east side of the river, being more convenient to the miners, became the trading point of the north. Yuba City subsequently becoming the county seat of Sutter, and surrounded by a good agricultural section, maintained its existence and continues a small but prosperous place.

The California Pacific Railroad passes through the village, and here crosses the Feather River to its termination in Marysville, but from a portion of the road being destroyed by high water operations on it are temporarily suspended.

The Sutter Banner, a weekly newspaper, is among the institutions maintained.
