Old Sacramento Schoolhouse Museum

Old Sacramento Schoolhouse Museum Review

Sacramento's first school welcomed students in August 1849 and closed permanently four months later. Five years passed before another public school opened. Today it's a kid-friendly attraction that shows what one-room schoolhouses were like in the California Central Valley and foothills in the late 1800s.
