Center for Sacramento History (CSH) is a historical research center for the Sacramento region. While it maintains museum and archival collections, making them available for study and exhibition, it does not currently maintain on-site permanent display areas as is traditionally found at a museum. The Center’s staff does create exhibitions and displays; however they are primarily exhibited at the Sacramento History Museum and public display areas of local government buildings.
The Center is the official repository for the archival, or non-current, records of the City and County of Sacramento; the preservation of these public documents is often required by state and federal law. The Center also maintains privately donated manuscripts and personal papers from individuals, businesses, and organizations in the community. The Center’s museum collections are artifacts, or three-dimensional objects, which also document the lives and activities of the residents of the Sacramento region.
