Historic Marysville

The city of Marysville is an historical treasure that you will enjoy exploring. Historic Downtown Marysville is an easy walking tour of the city’s past and includes numerous shops and restaurants, coffeehouse, artists’ cooperative gallery, museum and a homemade candy store all in the D Street area. Also in the heart of Marysville is the spacious County Library and the now-restored Bok Kai Temple, built in the city’s Chinatown in 1888.

Marysville is the county seat of Yuba County. The population within the city limits is 12,072.

Eclectic Yuba City

The Feather River borders the City to the east (with Marysville just over the two bridges), while its western horizon is dominated by the Sutter Buttes, popularly believed to be the smallest mountain range in
the world.

Yuba City has developed through the years as a pleasant, residential community that is also the commercial center for the surrounding area, home to national chain stores and restaurants. Cultural resources include a history museum, movie and stage theaters and a variety of performing arts groups.
