by the Sacramento History Museum & Alliance

The fun, free and family-friendly community event starts amid fanfare in front of the Sacramento History Museum 101 I Street, on the Old Sacramento Waterfront at 11 a.m., where the players will sign autographs, talk about their journey, tour the district.

Then head over to Doc Oliver Baseball Field at William Land Park, 1500 11th Avenue. Complete with period baseball uniforms and equipment – before gloves, catchers gear or even overhand pitching was introduced – the spirited 1869 baseball game recreation will begin at 1 p.m.


The Gold Spike Lecture Series

Join us for our final lecture of the 2019 series on Thursday, September 26th at 7pm as we welcome Author, David Haward Bain. Bain will present an intriguing look back at the creation and building of the Transcontinental Railroad, whom some argue is the single greatest technological feat of the 19th century. His award-winning book, Empire Express: Building the First Transcontinental Railroad will be available for purchase at the event.

Ghost Tours
The Sacramento History Museum & Alliance

With a theme of Murders, Mayhem and Tragedies this year, the eerie and ever-popular one-hour Ghost Tours provide Old Sacramento Waterfront guests with the opportunity to relive 19th century lore as guides (and ghosts) relate tantalizing narratives about the deaths of colorful citizens from Sacramento’s history. This year, the tours will take place at the riverfront, inside and relatively close to the Sacramento History Museum as daring and inquisitive guests revisit stories of pestilence, mayhem, quacks and fraud through the darker side of Sacramento’s fascinating history.
