Built in 1839, the Sutter’s fort was basically and agricultural and trade colony. A Swiss, John Sutter, was the one who built it and the fort was eventually named after him. In the old days, the fort’s presence was instrumental in the rise of Sacramento as a major city. A popular residence, the fort was eventually abandoned after word of the Gold Rush came to the ears of the inhabitants and they too left to try their luck there.

Sutter's Fort Reviews & Ratings

  • Our plans included visiting two places at once: the State Indian Museum and Sutter's fort,since they are located on the same park territory. There you will see a lot of interesting and informative household items of the Indians and their description, history in photographs and souvenirs. In John Sutter's Fort, there is a lot of activity and a lively performance of people dressed in the spirit of the 19th century, who will not only demonstrate how the item was used in everyday life of that time but will offer you to try it yourself. That's good for all family.

  • This is a really neat spot with a lot of history. I gave it five stars not for the quantity of stuff to see here but the quality. It’s a pretty quick little tour with some fascinating history. Best of all, they do a Halloween thing that is just creepy enough for kids without being too over the top.

  • Great history lesson for anyone that visits. Important to know how and who settled this part of California. Very well done!!

  • Great historic park near the center of Sacramento. Reenactments and restored buildings where you can leisurely stroll and learn about California history. Hurry and see it before Governor Newsom tears it down.

  • This is an amazing step back in time for some hands on living history. They offer field trips and visits daily. There is also a very well organized overnight program they offer to schools. Volunteers run stations in the park while the students research and dress up as people who really did live in and visit the fort. It is an unforgettable experience.
