Captain John A. Sutter, after coming up the Sacramento River from Yebra Buena in August, 1839, landed approximately two hundred feet north of here, at what was then the South Bank of the American River. A short time thereafter he moved to the site where he established a permanent camp, and later built a fort. Sutter and his men were the first settlers within the present city limits of Sacramento.
