Suisun City's Early History full of Drama
Mar 22, 2008
Abstract: Suisun was a fast growing town from the 1870s to the 1890s. Loads of marble passed through Suisun from Judge Swan's marble quarry located about seven miles north of Suisun at Tolenas Springs en route to San Francisco. A few of the old Suisun families had 40-pound clocks encased in the marble. The mineral water there was bottled and sold, along with sarsaparilla in the bars of the period. The Indians called the springs "The Land of Healing Water."
