Long Description:
Sutter Creek takes its name from the creek and the creek takes its name from John A. Sutter who owned the sawmill in Coloma where gold was first found in the Mother Lode in January of 1848. Unable to stop the tide of gold-seekers flowing over and destroying his lands, Sutter decided to follow the call of gold, trying in vain to recoup what the Gold Rush had taken. He arrived here in 1848 with a band of Kanakas and Indians, and upon finding a likely spot began mining along the creek.
