Summary
Smart carriages and a delivery wagon stand idle on I Street between 6th and 7th in front of the Hall of Records and County Court House about a century ago. The Court House was actually the original State Capitol located in Sacramento and hosted its first legislature in January 1855. The state rented the building until moving to the current Capitol in 1869. The building served Sacramento until the 1960's when a new Court House was built about a block away, and that building has now been replaced. The original structure on I Street has disappeared and a new County Jail now stands on the property.
