History

The Maidu people were settled in the region when they were first encountered by Spanish and Mexican scouting expeditions in the early 19th century. One version of the origin of the name "Yuba" is that during one of these expeditions, wild grapes were seen growing by a river, and so it was named "Uba", a variant spelling of the Spanish word uva (grape).
