Sattley 019

Sattley started out being called “Churchs’ Corners” for one of the first families to come to the area in the 1850’s. The name was changed to Sattley around 1884 when the Post Office came to town. The story goes that the postal service said there were too many “Churchs’ Corners”  in the country so Sattley, the maiden name of one of the earliest settlers, was chosen for the new name. Ranching, lumber mills, creameries and a brickyard are some on the early businesses in and around the town.

Today it is surrounded by ranches, some of which are still owned and worked by the original settler’s descendents. The small community is at the Eastern edge of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
