2. Teegarden House and Marker
Dr. Eli Teegarden traveled to Yuba City during the Gold Rush in 1850 from Ohio and set up his medical practice in Marysville. He ordered his "Kit Home" from his home state of Ohio and it was completed in 1853 at which time he sent for his wife, Deborah and his two children. He began his political career in Yuba and Sutter Counties and was eventually elected to the State Senate. Both Deborah and Dr. Teegarden are buried in the historic Marysville City Cemetery.

In the early 1900's the Kiley family bought the house and sold off a portion of the ranch property for taxes.

For about 8 years during the 1930's the house was used by the Yuba City Mortuary as a funeral home and in the 1940's it was a boarding house for soldiers stationed at nearby Beale AFB (then known as "Camp Beale".

The house is now owned by Jerry and Cindy Paine. After restoration it opened as the Teegarden House Event Center.

1. History of the Teegarden House. The original builder and owner of this historic home was Doctor Eli Teegarden. The lure of Gold Rush in the 1850ís brought Dr. Teegarden out west from Ohio. Initially, Dr. Tee relocated to San Francisco before finally settling in Yuba City where he chose to establish his medical practice. (Submitted on February 11, 2013.)
