The U.S. Postal Service sometimes lists addresses in Eagleville as being in Strawberry Valley, because they are both in the 95981 zip code. However, on the Yuba-Sutter Wiki, we prefer listing the more specific location Eagleville.


The History of Yuba County, California (Chapter XXXII: North East Township) by Thompson & West, 1879, described Eagleville this way:

One mile above Strawberry Valley lies the old town of Eagleville. The first settler at that point was Andrew Rowe, about 1851. A man named Cole came a little later, and built a house on piles, so as to be above the reach of grizzly bears, who were his constant terror. When the miners began to work the gulches here, the place became a sort of headquarters, and was named Eagleville, after the Eagle Mill. The town then rejoiced in a hotel, store, and quite a number of inhabitants. With the decline of mining here, has also disappeared the town.
