Sacramento: California's Capital City
Sacramento is located in Northern California and is home to more than two million five hundred thousand inhabitants, if its metropolitan area is included. However, Sacramento was not California's city capital until 1854. Before that year, the capital city was located in Monterey, particularly during the Spanish administration, and later in San Jose, Vallejo and Benicia.
