National Register of Historic Places in Sacramento County, California
The Old Sacramento Historic District is an area of a few blocks beside the Sacramento River -which still retains some flavor of the pioneering era of the city's history from about 1840 to 1870.
Old Sacramento during the Gold Rush days of the mid 19th century was a hub of activity for Northern California and the entire Pacific Coast. Gold prospectors from all over the world loaded up with supplies here and joined the wagon trains which slowly wound into the Mother Lode country.
The first stores, hotels theatres and other commercial structures were made of wood, brick and stone. Despite floods, fires, cholera and squatter riots, Old Sacramento thrived. Its energetic citizens built levees, formed fire brigades, established hospitals, schools and churches.
The first stage and telegraph lines, the first steamboats, the first California railroad and the Pony Express agency were here.
The Old Sacramento Historic District is a National Historic Landmark and a California Historical Landmark.
