Named for a beautiful grove of live oak trees, the City was first settled in 1866 and incorporated in 1947. The town grew with the advent of the California-Oregon Railroad in the 1870's and was the second city to be established in Sutter County along State Route 99 East. Today, Live Oak is a growing community with approximately 8, 514 residents located approximately 50 miles north of Sacramento. Live Oak offers affordable housing with a small town atmosphere, perfect for raising young families as well as a great opportunity for new business.
The City takes pride in the programs and services it provides to the community and has developed this website as a resource for residents, businesses and visitors.
