Sutter's Fort is not only an historical landmark but the beginnings of Sacramento. The State Capital of California was expected to be part of a larger community, but had it's start as a small utopian ideal of a Swiss immigrant. The Fort is located in the central area but safe enough from flooding river banks.
Out of these small beginnings grew a mighty city which has important international connections. The origins were with the original entrepreners of America, the fur trappers. While some families became rich, such as the Astoria's, many were small time trappers.
Come and see the real men of the West, Trappers, Traders and Treaty makers. Traders were the main stay of the past civilizations, but in the West, they were the only connection between the Eastern refinement and the Western roughness.
The Treaty makers created a unique universe throughout the western world. California became one of the most important states after the Civil War, and during the Second World War it was the only buffer between the East and the West.
Enjoy one of the first buildings in the California rugged life after the Spanish left behind indian missions. The authentic historical customes and setting while provide a fine example of what the rest of the world sees in films of this state.
