“Catch Gold Fever,” the theme for our popular Hand on History Program, will focus on the rush for GOLD that gripped Sacramento in 1849. Miners, from around the world, rushed in and changed California forever. How did the Gold Rush change Sutter’s Fort? Visitors will learn the answer to this question, pan for gold, experience a gold rush economy, and explore how the discovery of gold changed California.
