Hello Friends of Sacramento History!
Welcome to the Sacramento Historical Society. For more than 50 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.
SHS memberships start at just $35. To join, click here. Your support continues to help us improve our programs.
We look forward to meeting you at future events. Come and gather with like-minded, friendly people and have fun exploring the history and culture of our fantastic region!
The purpose of the Sacramento Historical Society is to preserve the heritage of the Sacramento region, to act as a resource for inquiries regarding local area history, and to promote a greater awareness of Sacramento's regional and national history.
