Where to Start

To get started on this year's Archives Crawl, begin at ANY of the four host locations: the California State Archives (1020 'O' Street), California State Library (900 'N' Street), Center for Sacramento History (551 Sequoia Pacific Blvd.), or the Sacramento Room at the Central Library (828 'I' Street).  You will be given a passport at the first location you visit, which will provide a map to the others.  Each host location will stamp your passport when you arrive.  Free parking is available at the California State Archives and the Center for Sacramento History.

Archives Crawl Prizes

Get your 2011 Archives Crawl passport stamped at three out of four host locations, and you will take home a beautiful set of limited-edition commemorative coasters (pictured below). The coasters honor the pub crawl theme by featuring reproductions of the city’s former Buffalo Brewing Company and its advertising campaigns. Passports will be given to guests at the first host location they visit. The passport provides a map of the event and information about the participating archives and special collection libraries. The coasters will be available at each host site, while supplies last.
