About Sacramento, California
Sacramento is the capitol city of California with a population of 477,892 people and covers an area of approximately 100 square miles, making it the sixth largest city in the State of California and thirty-fifth largest in the United States. The Sacramento Metropolitan Area includes seven counties and has an estimated population of 2,527,123.
Incorporated on February 27, 1850, Sacramento is the oldest incorporated city in the State of California. In 1848 James W. Marshall discovered gold at Sutter’s Fort, which prompted a large number of gold-seekers to migrate to the Sacramento area, a migration which is commonly referred to as the “California Gold Rush.” In 1863 Sacramento became the terminus of the First Transcontinental Railroad, which along with the Gold Rush was another contributing factor to the surge in population Sacramento began to experience.
The economy of Sacramento is largely dependent on Medical Services and government jobs. The State of California, Sacramento County and the City of Sacramento combined employ over 85,000 people throughout Sacramento.
