History Museum Celebrates 100 Years of I Street Bridge With Photo Display - 4/28 | Transportation
In honor of the 100th anniversary of the completion of Sacramento’s I Street bridge, the Sacramento History Museum will unveil a special exhibit showcasing photographs of the beloved bridge on Saturday, April 28.
This Sacramento landmark was built by the Southern Pacific in 1912 with contributions by Sacramento and Yolo counties. A true engineering accomplishment in its day, this bridge was built to last. In fact, the first train to cross the bridge did so on April 29, 1912, and train travel on the bridge continues to this day. The Sacramento History Museum invites the community to visit the photo display and learn more about the history of this enduring landmark.
This special photo display will continue through 2012. For more information, visit www.HistoricOldSac.org or call 916-808-7059.
