The first settlement reached in California by emigrant trains using the Emigrant ("Donner") Trail. It was an original part of the 1844 Don Pablo Gutierrez Land Grant. It was sold at auction to William Johnson in 1854. In 1849 part of the ranch was set aside as a government reserve — Camp Far West. In 1866 the town of Wheatland was also laid out on a portion of the grant.
