Sacramento is the capital of California and the 6th largest city in the state. It has an estimated population of 501,000 people and covers 100 square miles. Located in Sacramento County in the central part of the state, area code 916 includes parts of El Dorado County, Placer County, Yolo County, and Sutter County as well. Sacramento is one of the most important cities in California and is only 94 miles away from San Francisco, 114 miles from San Jose and 425 miles from Los Angeles.
Sacramento was founded by John Sutter, Sr., and was originally a Mexican land grant. It was incorporated in 1850 after California became a US state and experienced a population surge during the California Gold Rush. Finally, Sacramento was named the California state capital in 1879.
The city continued to grow throughout the late 1800’s and 1900’s in part due to the First Transcontinental Railroad and the Port of Sacramento. The city’s population increases yearly and now it sits comfortably as the 6th largest city in California and 35th largest in the United States.
