676 Sl Sutters Mill 4
Photograph - Digital Photo,
taken at Coloma ca
Sutter came to the foothills in search of a place for a saw mill. Sutter did have some men in the area of what is now Sutter Creek whipsawing lumber by hand, but he needed much more wood for his ambitious plans.
On August 27, 1847, Sutter and James W. Marshall entered into an agreement to construct a saw mill on the American River at a place known to the Indians as "Collumah."
