Yuba City is located in Sutter County in the Sacramento Valley. The Feather River is nearby. The county includes the beautiful Sutter Buttes, known as "The World's Smallest Mountain Range." Yuba City is the major center for shopping and business for the region. Agriculture, lumber and wood, food processing facilities and the Beale Air Force bases are major factors for the economy. The town has a large Sikh community. The Punjabi population residing in Yuba-Sutter Area is one of the largest Sikh populations in the country.

History

The vast majority of the region was included in a substantial land grant named "New Helvetia" which was given to John Sutter by the Spanish. Yuba City was established in 1849 on acreage acquired from John Sutter by Samuel Brannan, Henry Cheever and Pierson Reading. It was utilized as a supply center for the minors during the Gold Rush. When the Gold Rush ended settlers began to arrive in Yuba City due to the fertile soil and agriculture soon became a primary factor for the economy.
