About Sacramento

A place centered in history with a community blazing the trail, Sacramento is a place with proven potential and an equally exciting future. Sacramento was founded in 1849 by John Sutter during the Gold Rush and became California’s state capital in 1854. Sacramento is the seventh largest city in California and the largest city in the six-county Greater Sacramento region with a population of nearly 500,000.

Sacramento’s geographic location, qualified workforce, lower cost of living, access to government and higher education, quality of life, amenities and cultural offerings are all key ingredients that make it the place to be.
