What you'll do

Join local professional Artist and Film maker, Tony Brown on a discovery tour through Old Sacramento and Sacramento. This is a live streaming virtual tour using Zoom. We will walk around the city and visit buildings, and vehicles that are relics of the mid-19th century, some of which are still in use. You can also access Google and Street View as we walk and talk about the history and birth of Sacramento and how the Gold Rush ushered in a new era of the the United States.

Old Sacramento, and the museums that are located there, are destinations that attract hundreds of thousands of tourists a year. The Transcontinental Railroad began in Sacramento and several trains from that era are on display. Sacramento is called the city of trees and is second only to Paris, France. Sacramento was once the largest city West of the Mississippi, during the Gold Rush period. You will also learn about who several famous entrepreneurs got their start in Sacramento, including Levi Strauss and the Henry Wells and William Fargo.

I hope that at the end of our tour, you’ll have a better understanding about the history of California and Sacramento and gain a greater appreciation of the culture and life during the birth of the beautiful city if Sacramento.
