Welcome to the Sacramento Historical Society!
For more than 70 years, this organization has brought together people like you to preserve and promote Sacramento's golden history. As home of the first transcontinental railroad, the Pony Express, the first transcontinental telegraph and the center of the Gold Rush, the Sacramento region has a treasure trove of history to appreciate and discover.
We hope you will consider joining the Society now. We have many fascinating programs for you to enjoy and continue to add new amenities to our home at Columbus Hall, including a bar, snacks, and television monitors to make viewing the programs even more enjoyable. We will also continue to add new members-only programs, and are planning tours to historic sites in our beautiful region.
"Happiness is a positive cashflow."
