Long Description:
Sacramento's first County Courthouse, formerly located on this site, served as California's State Capitol from January 16, 1852 to May 4, 1852 and from March 1, 1854 to May 15, 1854, when it housed the third and fifth sessions of the State Legislature. Destoryed by fire on July 13, 1854, it was rebuilt in less than six months. The second courthouse served as the capitol from 1855 to 1869 when a transition began to the current statehouse. A third courthouse occupied this site and remained until replaced by the county jail in 1989.
