Just about 7.5 miles southeast of the rancher town Nicolaus is yet another petite but pleasant town of Pleasant Grove. It is also encircled by settlements of Sankey, Verona, Catlett as well as Trowbridge. Bearing a rich past of being a wagon as well as a fright-stop during the years of the Californian Gold Rush, Pleasant Grove does also offer recreational entertainment along with displaying the artifact ruins of its past! The Pleasant Grove Creek Canal and Pleasant Oak Lake are the first places to visit in Pleasant Grove and if it is the history that intrigues your mine here at Pleasant Grove, the Sutter County Library of the Pleasant Grove branch is just ideal for you! One might find its yester years’ name as Gouge Eye which was its name as the wagon of the Gold Rush period! Panoramic views with the ting of gold define the Pleasant Grove.
