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.


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.
