Living History

Bringing History to Life!

The Sacramento Living History program is a volunteer organization dedicated to keeping the past alive and educating the public about Sacramento’s history. Our mission is to educate, engage, and entertain the public on the streets of Old Sacramento and within the Sacramento History Museum through the historical recreation of the individuals, events, and activities of Sacramento’s rich history.

Visit us! (map to Hastings Annex coming soon)


Every SECOND SATURDAY find us on the streets of Old Sacramento, or within the Hastings Annex found at 1002 2nd Street, and learn more about early Sacramento citizens.
