St. Francis Church In background. Sutter's Fort was founded August 12,1839 by Capt. John A. Sutter as the first outpost of white civilization in the then interior wilderness of California. It was originally built as a fortress against hostile Indians. The Old Fort became the Western terminus of the overland wagon trains, and one of the richest and largest trading posts in the West.
