Marigold is a former town in Yuba County. It was located on the south bank of the Yuba River, southwest of Hammonton, northwest of Beale Air Force Base, and northeast of Dantoni. Its elevation is 108 feet.

The native plant communities of Marigold are central oak woodland and riparian forest.

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.
