The Sutter Cemetery originally South Butte Cemetery, lay to the west on the stage road, and beside it was the school house, that was dismissed when there was a funeral.Sutter City was the result of an attempt to take advantage of the boom in California in the late 1880s. The town was located south of the Cemetery along the path of a railroad line projected to pass through the town and it hoped to become the new county seat, because it was near the geographical center of the county. However the rail line was never built and it never became the county seat.The Sutter City post office name was changed to Sutter on January 26, 1895.GeographyAccording to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP covers an area of 3.0 square miles (7.9 km²), all of it land.Sutter is in California.
