California State Railroad Museum
AAA Editor Notes
Old Sacramento is a four-block, 28-acre section of downtown delineated by the Capitol Mall, I St., 2nd St. and the Sacramento River. This was the city's commercial district during the gold rush era. Cobblestone streets and wood sidewalks lend a touch of yesteryear to this vibrant commercial district, which includes Old Sacramento State Historic Park as well as museums, shops and restaurants.

The 1853 B.F. Hastings Building at 2nd and I streets once housed a Wells, Fargo & Co. office, marked the western end of the Pony Express route and, for a time, housed California's Supreme Court; today it's a visitor and interpretive center. The Wells Fargo History Museum within the building displays a Wells Fargo agent's office, a scale model of a Wells Fargo stagecoach, a 19th-century copy machine, a working telegraph and a scale used for weighing gold.

Admission

Hours
