This tour is designed for kids in FOURTH GRADE and up. Sacramento Historic City Cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway in Sacramento, CA. Tours convene at the 10th Street gate.

Sutter’s Fort to present “Hands on History: Catch Gold Fever” on January 20

Sutter’s Fort to present “Hands on History: Catch Gold Fever” on January 20
California State Parks, Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park (SHP) and Friends of Sutter’s Fort are proud to present an interactive and fun “Hands on History: Catch Gold Fever” event on Saturday, January 20, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  

 Fort visitors will have the unique opportunity to step back in time and explore an era that changed California forever. The gold discovery at Coloma echoed around the world and triggered the largest migration in United States history. Thousands of immigrants gambled and came to early California to try to strike it rich. They left family behind, spent life savings, and borrowed money all in the pursuit of gold. Many miners bought one-way passage on ships bound for California, and abandoned ships clogged the port in San Francisco as miners and sailors took off for the hills.
