The part of California that would become Sacramento has been occupied by native American groups like the Maidu and the Nisenan for at least 19,000 years. Originally, that part of California was claimed by the Spanish, and then Mexico. Sacramento was named after the Sacramento River, which was originally called the Río del Santísimo Sacramento or ‘Most Holy Sacrament’. The movement of European peoples into the region after contact was slow, that is until the discovery of gold in 1848. After that, Europeans came in droves, mostly from other parts of Mexico and the United States. By 1850, California was formally made a US State, and Sacramento was one of its more important inland cities.

The city is built at the confluence of the American and Sacramento Rivers, which have historically been prone to flooding.

This makes Sacramento a rail shipping hub for the entire valley. Sacramento is set on a coastal plain with fairly dry weather.
