The U.S. Postal Service sometimes lists addresses in Marigold as being in Marysville, because they are both in the 95901 zip code. However, on the Yuba-Sutter Wiki, we prefer listing the more specific location Marigold.
Marigold was originally called Martins. The name Marigold was short for Marysville Gold Mining Company, which bought the entire town and housed its employees there. Marysville Gold Mining Company dredged the Yuba River in Marigold in the early 20th century to recover any remaining gold from the debris that had been dumped into the river by hydraulic mining upstream. Marigold had its own post office from 1911 to 1929. In 1957, the town was shut down and its inhabitants were displaced.
