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!

New Exhibit: "Kids Collect"


We recently worked with 5th and 6th graders of Hmong heritage at Susan B. Anthony Elementary School to create an exhibit using artifacts that are important to them. The exhibit is presented with label text written by the students themselves. Come see the exhibit at City Hall.
