As you enter Old Sacramento's 28-acre town of historic buildings that were constructed in the early 1800s, you�ll step back in time to the California Gold Rush era.
Once a thriving riverfront pioneer town, Old Sacramento, west of Downtown Sacramento, California, now primarily exists as living historic district. Its historical significance comes from being the western terminus of the Pony Express postal system, the first transcontinental railroad, and the transcontinental telegraph.
The wooden boardwalk style sidewalks, horse-drawn stagecoaches, old-fashioned candy shops and Mississippi-style riverboats give this small section of town a unique nostalgic flavor.
The entire original historic 1850s business district is a National Historic Landmark. With over 50 historic buildings, Old Sacramento has more buildings of historic value in its 28 acres than any area of similar size in the West.
