A town created to serve the gold miners...

Item # 130237 WEEKLY SUTTER BANNER, Yuba City, California, 1876  The Mexican government granted land in Northern California to John Sutter, including a parcel upon which Yuba City is located, the same John Sutter upon whose land gold was subsequently discovered in 1848. He sold part of this tract to some enterprising men who wished to establish a town near the confluence of the Yuba River and the Feather River, with an eye to developing a commercial center catering to the thousands of gold miners headed upstream to the gold fields. 
Four pages, good condition.
