Founded with the California Gold Rush...

Item # 130194 MARYSVILLE DAILY APPEAL, California 1866  Marysville has a "rich" history relating to the California Gold Rush. During that era, the ranch which was later developed into the town of Marysville, was a popular landing for riverboats from San Francisco and Sacramento filled with miners on their way to the dig sites. One of the early developers had a wife named Mary. The town's name was chosen in deference to her, a survivor of the ill-fated Donner Party tragedy of 1847. Marysville prospered during the Gold Rush era, becoming one of the largest cities in California.  In 1857 alone, over $10 million in gold was shipped from Marysville’s banks to the U.S. Mint in San Francisco.
