In 1849, Sacramento was an economic center of the California Gold Rush and was a destination for many people who were seeking riches. Despite the Sacramento region being inhabited before the Gold Rush, the area became world renown when James W. Marshall discovered gold in 1848. Long before the gold rush, the area was at point inhabited by Indigenous Californian groups, then Spanish explorers and Mexicans lived in that region, in addition to much of the state. The California State Legislature officially moved to Sacramento in 1854 the city was named the permanent State Capital at a 1879 Constitutional Convention, and after that, the region flourished even more, becoming a hub of the region. In present day, Sacramento has many historical neighborhoods that make city unique.

The state capital has community colleges like Sacramento City College and Cosumnes River College that provide students more affordable post-secondary education. Since Sacramento is the state’s capital, the forms of media that reaches the masses are important in that area.
