Congratulations to our September County of the Month, Yuba! Formed in 1850, Yuba County boasted a population of 72,155 people as of 2010. In addition to having several very active historic preservation organizations, Yuba County is also the home of a thriving agricultural sector and to Beale Air Force Base. Furthermore, its abundance of gold-bearing gravel beds made it home to many Gold-Rush era boom-towns. If you are looking for an exciting local history research project, you might find one within this region's boundaries!
