Sutter Community Bank is located in Yuba City on beautiful downtown Plumas Street.

Yuba City is one of California's oldest and fastest growing cities. The first business opened its doors in 1849 on 2nd Street just a few short blocks from where Sutter Community Bank is now located.

Most of the land that is now Sutter County was part of a large land grant, called "New Helvetia," deeded to John Sutter by the Spanish in 1841. To support his settlement at Sacramento, Sutter started a stock ranch called the Hock Farm near the site of what is now Yuba City.

Yuba City was found in 1849 by Samuel Brannan, Pierson Reading, and Henry Cheever on land purchased from John Sutter. They came to establish a distribution center for supplying the Gold Rush 49ers. Sam Brannan, as senior partner, had the town site laid out and hired agents to sell lots. Today he is honored with a city park named for him.

During the Gold Rush days, Marysville (in Yuba County), on the east bank of the Feather River, overshadowed Yuba City, since it was easier for miners arriving by riverboat from San Francisco and Sacramento to reach the gold fields to the east.

It wasn't until after the Gold Rush was over, and people turned to the fertile land west of the river, that Yuba City began to prosper. Yuba City was established as the county seat by a vote in 1856, and incorporated January 23, 1908.

The City itself is nestled in the center of the state at the confluence of the Yuba and Feather Rivers. Yuba City offers a rich and diverse array of cultural amenities, abundant outdoor activities, hiking, hunting, water skiing, and affordable housing.

Yuba City has the advantage of being a rural environment with all the big city amenities close at hand. Sacramento and the international airport are just a forty minute drive. San Francisco or Lake Tahoe are but two hours drive on well-maintained interstate highways.

Forbes Magazine's Best Small Places listing recently announced that The Yuba City metropolitan statistical area is the number one "Best Small Place to live in California."
