Sutter's Fort

Sacramento, California

"In 1839, John Sutter received a 48,000 acre land grant from Mexico and built an adobe
fort. It became Sacramento's earliest settlement and the first non-native American
settlement in California's Central Valley. In 1847, John Sutter sent aid to the Donner
Party." --Johanna
