Just 40 miles north of Sacramento, Yuba City is the agricultural, economic, and social hub of the Yuba-Sutter Region. Providing a unique blend of urban amenities and small-town charm, Yuba City’s historic downtown is the perfect backdrop for shopping, entertainment and community events. Yuba City is located in Sutter County in the Sacramento Valley. It was established in 1849 on acreage acquired from John Sutter by Samuel Brannan, Henry Cheever, and Pierson Reading. Yuba City is a blend of turn-of-the-century architecture and modern-day conveniences. It was utilized as a supply center for the miners during the Gold Rush. When the Gold Rush ended settlers began to settle in Yuba City due to the fertile soil, and agriculture soon became a primary factor for the economy. Yuba City and its neighboring Marysville are Central Valley cities separated by the Sacramento River at the junction of the Feather River.
