Gold Rush History Center, Sacramento Photos

The Gold Rush History Center (also called Discovery History Center) concentrates on the Gold Rush because the 1849 discovery at Sutter's Mill was essentially a Sacramento event. However, many other aspects of local history are covered like the 1862 flood, local newspapers, agriculture, & the Pony Express which terminated in the city.
