The Center for Sacramento History (CSH) exists to foster, stimulate, and promote the study and appreciation of Sacramento's regional history. It serves the community by acquiring, preserving, exhibiting, and providing access to the documentary and material culture of the area.
CSH is the repository and research center for the City and County historic collections. These reflect the many aspects of local history and are organized into three major areas: domestic, commercial, and government. Within these areas the holdings consist of the official records of the City and County government, personal manuscript collections, business records, photographs, and artifacts.
CSH, formerly the Sacramento Archives & Museum Collection Center (SAMCC), is administered by the City of Sacramento, History and Science Division, and is jointly funded by both the City and the County of Sacramento.
