Our Mission

Old Sacramento is a National Landmark that boasts 53 historic buildings and 5 million visitors annually. While the area has seen vast improvements since it was first redeveloped in the 60's, it is the goal of the Historic Old Sacramento Foundation to realize the area's potential as California's hub of historic education and preservation. By broadening the historic and cultural offerings of Old Sacramento, the story of California's beginnings can be preserved and shared in a way that truly brings history to life.


The Mission of Historic Old Sacramento Foundation is the creation and maintenance of vital and engaging interpretive programming in the district and museum.


The Historic Old Sacramento Foundation will bring history to life.
