In 1848, John Sutter and his partner James W Marshall discovered gold flakes at the sawmill they owned and operated (famously named Sutter’s Mill). This discovery would shape the entire future of California. Word spread fast and over the next seven years over 300,000 people would journey to California in search of fortune. John Sutter is known for many things, his role in the gold rush, the founding of Sutter’s Fort, which would go on to become the California State Capital of Sacramento. But what Sutter is largely unknown for is his naming of Yuba County.
Sutter named Yuba County after the Yuba River. The county, which is part of the Sacramento Metropolitan Area, is located in northern California along the Feather River. Incorporated in 1850, it is one of the original counties of the state. Famous for being home to the Tahoe National Forest and the Plumas National Forest, large swaths of the county are federally protected ecological areas. With rice fields and fruit orchards scattered throughout the western portion of the county, the area features landscapes that rival any in terms of esthetics throughout the entire state.
