Sacramento Archives Crawl - Saturday October 1!
The 12th Annual Sacramento Archives Crawl is Saturday, October 1! This free event gives the public a chance to see historic treasures from more than 20 Northern California archives at four host locations in downtown Sacramento: the California State Archives, California State Library, Center for Sacramento History, and Sacramento Public Library. Participants can also go on behind-the-scenes tours, take part in a scavenger hunt, and attend a presentation by a local food historian. This year’s theme, Acquired Tastes: Food and Agriculture in Regional Collections, highlights archival material related to food, drinks, restaurants, and agriculture in our region.
CSH Open for Research
The Center for Sacramento History has re-opened for in-person research by appointment only. Current reference hours are Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9 am-noon and 1-4 pm.

Collecting COVID-19 Stories
The Center for Sacramento History is collecting your COVID-19 experiences to help future generations understand what it was like to live through this crisis in the Sacramento region. Complete the Center for Sacramento History COVID-19 Story Form to send us your files or donate an object. We are accepting digital photos, videos, audio recordings, and physical objects, photos, signs, and documents.
New Finding Aids Online
We have hundreds of archival collections here at the Center, and we're making a big push to upload finding aids for every single one of them to the Online Archive of California. This will make it easier for everyone to discover what we have in our repository, which will further open up access to our collections for research. New finding aids are being added every week. Check them out, and check back often!
