Yuba City Colony

District: Yuba City
Province: California
Country: United States
 
In 1921, eight Doukhobors leased a 150-acre farm near Yuba City in Yuba County, California where they attempted to establish a communal colony. While it lasted, it was visited by local Molokans and lively philosophical discussions were a favorite leisure-time activity. The tiny colony was unable to sustain itself and was abandoned when the lease expired in 1924. [39 8' N - 121 36' W]
