History

The Maidu people lived in the Yuba City area before the Spanish and Mexican scouting expeditions came. The word "Yuba" comes from "uba," with is a variant spelling of the Spanish word "uva," which means grape. A large amount of land that included Yuba City was given to John Sutter by the Mexican government. He sold part of his land to some enterprising men who wanted to create a town near the confluence of Yuba River and Feather River. Yuba City was a steamboat landing, had 20 dwelling homes, a hotel, a grocery store, and a post office by 1852. In 1854, Yuba City was chosen to be the county seat for Sutter County.

Later in the year, Yuba City lost the position of the county seat, and instead, Nicolaus became the new county seat. Two years later, Yuba City was once again voted to be the county seat and has remained the county seat ever since then.[1] After World War II, Yuba City's population increased. Orchards were turned into neighborhoods for people to live in. In 1995, a series of storms caused rivers to overflow. Yuba City flooded, and many had to be saved by helicopter and taken to safety. One interesting story regarding the region took place in March of 1961, when an airplane holding nuclear weapons had a pressurization problem. As a result, the plane had to fly lower, and the fuel ran out. The plane crashed, and the airship and nuclear weapons were destroyed, though there was no explosion.[1]
