California State Historic Landmark 591
#591 Captain John A. Sutter's Landing
Captain John A. Sutter, after coming up the Sacramento River from Yerba 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 his fort. Sutter and his men were the first settlers within the
present city limits of Sacramento.
Nothing remains of this site.
