Sutterville (also, Sutter, Sutter City, and Suttersville) is a former settlement in Sacramento County, California.[1] It was located on the Southern Pacific Railroad 2.25 miles (3.6 km) south-southwest of Sacramento,[1]

John A. Sutter had Lansford W. Hastings and John Bidwell lay out the town in 1844, south of his embarcadero on a low bluff overlooking the Sacramento River.[1] In exchange, Hastings and Bidwell both received a share of the lots. It was in this settlement that George Zins built one of the first brick structures in California in 1847.[2] When the town of Sacramento developed at his embarcadero, Sutterville fell into decline.[1] The Sutterville post office operated from 1855 to 1860.[1] Sutterville was the site of Camp Union, a major California Volunteer training camp during the American Civil War.[1]

Sutterville is also California Historical Landmark #593.[2]
