Verona is in an extremely rural area, surrounded by a high concentration of farms. There are many farm airports in the area, including Lauppes Strip, Riego Flight Strip, Vestal Strip, and the Sopwith Farms Airport.
Other than farming, the main industry in Verona consists of Verona Village Resort and other busineses marketed expressly to the resort's customers. Verona Village Resort is a queer-friendly resort owned by the same person who owns Faces, Sacramento's premier gay nightclub.
The U.S. Postal Service sometimes lists addresses in Verona as being in Nicolaus, because they are both in the 95659 zip code. However, on the Yuba-Sutter Wiki, we prefer listing the more specific location Verona.
An epidemic of smallpox, apparently intentionally introduced by the Hudson Bay Company, killed a huge portion of the Nisenan population in the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys in 1833. The racist yet historically valuable History of Yuba County, California (Chapter III: Indians), by Thompson & West, 1879, described the epidemic's effects on an Indian village located in what is now Verona:
|A village is mentioned in particular, located on the east bank of the Sacramento at the mouth of Feather river, and there were numerous others on the west bank of the latter along nearly its whole length, and a considerable number on the east bank. The bodies or skeletons were found on the river banks, and under bushes in the woods, as if the sufferers were endeavoring to protect themselves from the ravages of the pestilence.|
