Originally, Indians of the Maidu tribe settled in the area when first encounters with Spanish and Mexican expedition troops took place. The history of the origin of the name Yuba says that during an expedition wild grapes were discovered that grew on a river, and accordingly the country was called Uba , a modified spelling of the Spanish word for grape, and many others .
The Mexican government granted John Sutter a large area of land, including the urban area of today's Yuba City, to build his private colony New Helvetia . Sutter sold parts of the area in 1849 to entrepreneurs who wanted to found a town on the Feather River to build a trading center that would supply the thousands of prospectors who moved upstream to the gold rush areas.
In 1856, after several votes, Yuba City became the county seat of Sutter County.
After the Second World War , the city experienced its first large population influx, as a result of which green spaces in the west and south of the original center were converted into residential areas in order to be able to provide the new residents with accommodation.
In December 1955, a series of storms brought heavy rain to Northern California, causing flooding. As a result, the levels of the rivers rose, which as a result overran their banks and caused dam breaks. In Yuba City, the breach of the dam on Christmas Eve led to great destruction in the city center and 38 deaths.
