Bill George elected President of the Sacramento Historical Society

Sacramento-area filmmaker and historian Bill George was elected President of the Sacramento Historical Society, one of the region’s largest and most prestigious cultural and historical organizations.

“I’m thrilled and excited to serve as President,” Bill said. “The Sacramento Historical Society has been a leader in preserving and promoting  Sacramento’s incredible history. Staring with John Sutter in the 1840s, Sacramento has been one of the most important

cities in the west and in California. The Society has played an important role in telling the story of the Gold Rush, the 1st transcontinental railroad, the Pony Express and the state capitol. Sacramento is one of the most historic cities in the United States, and we are working with other organizations and city and state entities to promote Sacramento’s wonderful story.”

The society presents a lively and informational  program every month, organizes tours to events and historic locations, and offers publications and films about the region’s rich history. Monthly programs are held at Columbus Hall located at 5961 Newman Court, Sacramento, CA 95819. Programs are conducted the 4th Tuesday of every month. You will enjoy meeting friendly people who share similar passions and interest.
