The Burnett Awards

2019 Burnett Awards
Hosted by the Sacramento History Alliance


The Burnett Awards is a benefit for two of Sacramento’s Historic Treasures – The Sacramento History Museum and the Center for Sacramento History.  Each year, the Sacramento History Alliance honors area businesses that have met the test of time.  They may not always be the oldest, but they are old enough – we call them “Venerable”.

The Burnett Awards is named in honor of Burnett Miller – native Sacramentan, politician, philanthropist, business leader and the City’s “Number 1” history buff.


Last year’s awardees were:  Beer’s Books; Biba Ristorante Italiano; Blue Diamond Growers; Burnett & Sons Planing Mill & Lumber Company; Corti Brothers; Espanol Italian Restaurant; Frank Fat’s; The Trap.
