About the Center for Sacramento History

Founded in 1953, the Center for Sacramento History educates and enriches the public by collecting, preserving, and making accessible the region's vast cultural heritage. CSH is a division of the City of Sacramento and is funded by both the city and Sacramento County. We are the official repository and research center for historical city and county government records, and we house collections from individuals, families, businesses, and community organizations that chronicle the history of the Sacramento region.
