Like the Western Hotel the D.O. Mills Bank, and the original Sacramento Bee Building, the Overton Building was apparently razed for the construction of Interstate 5 through Old Town Sacramento.

The Overton Building contributed to the Old Sacramento Historic District which is a National Historic Landmark.

We were unable to locate a bear flag plaque for the Overton Building. Here's a list of other California Historical Landmarks which had no bear flag plaque when we visited them.
