1. Sutterville Brewery Marker
Inscription. Site of a two story brick building built for Robert H. Vance of San Francisco in 1853. One of five brick structures erected that year, it was first occupied as a store. Almost coincident with the founding of Camp Union in 1861, it was taken over by Martin Arenz for a brewery and operated until after 1880. It ended up as a rental hall and was razed in 1952, but for ninety years was called THE SUTTERVILLE BREWERY. It was Sutterville's last remaining building.
 
Erected 1983 by The Ancient and Honorable Order of E. Clampus Vitus, New Helvetia Chapter No.5, August 6, 1983.

town first projected by Captain Sutter in 1844, is south of William Land Park, across Sutterville Rd. The first brick house in California was built here in 1847. All that remains is the old Sutterville Brewery, built in 1853, a square, two-story, structure made of brick dug and baked in the immediate neighborhood. Here the first steam beer in Sacramento was made. The building was a place of refuge from the floods before levees were built.
