The City of Marysville is located on the ancestral land of the Maidu tribe, which lived there 10,000 years before the founding of the town. Europeans, including Jedediah Smith and Hudson Bay Company trappers, stumbled into the region, but never reached the Feather River. John Sutter, an Oregon landowner, leased some of his land to Theodore Cordua, a pioneer who grew livestock and built a home and trading post called New Mecklenburg at the southern end of 'D' Street.
