Fall Tour Schedule


Sacramento City comes alive from the perspective of a 1850s personality. Sacramento City: California's Gold Rush Legacy introduces visitors, school groups, and interested locals to Sacramento's fascinating history. A historically attired docent uses the original and reconstructed gold rush era buildings as the backdrop for the tour and describes the town as it was in 1850. From miners, to merchants, politicians, pony express riders, and employees of the transcontinental railroad- Sacramento City: California's Gold Rush Legacy has it all.

Walk-in tours are available every Saturday and Sunday in October at 11:00am.
