We are merchants, miners, doctors, proper ladies, soiled doves, blacksmiths. In short, we are the citizens of Sacramento City. Old Sacramento Living History is a volunteer organization dedicated to keeping the past alive. Through a series of monthly re-enactments, "Take it to the Streets," Living History Days, activities, events, and performances we use the backdrop of Old Sacramento's historic buildings and streets as a living street museum. Our most renowned events and activities are the annual Gold Rush Days event held over Labor Day weekend and Ghost Tours in the month of October. Members of this active group share knowledge, skills, and interests in California's 19th Century history through costume classes, workshops, themed discussions, and chorus group practices.
