About this Project
The purpose of Old Sacramento State Historic Park is to collect, preserve, study, restore, reconstruct, exhibit, and interpret, for the education, recreation, and entertainment of the broadest possible audience, the story of the City of Sacramento. Old Sacramento SHP was established in 1965 in concert with the redevelopment of adjacent private buildings in Old Sacramento and the designation of the Old Sacramento Historic District as a U.S. National Historic Landmark.
This proposed hotel project aligns with State Parks goals to better serve the growing park’s visitor population and improve the educational, cultural, and historical vitality of Old Sacramento, outlined in the Old Sacramento State Historic Park General Plan. The proposal also matches well with the City of Sacramento’s Destination Sacramento Program and Waterfront Idea Makers program, which are intended to promote visitation to Old Sacramento and attract more local residents to the area.
Over the past 9 months, State Parks has worked with local historic preservation, architecture, planning, and design firm, Page & Turnbull, Inc. to develop a series of conceptual studies and design guidelines for the proposed hotel which provide the envisioned program while providing compatibility and protection of the historic district. The public can explore these conceptual studies made available on this website.
