Join Sacramento Heritage, Inc. on Saturday, February 9 for a "Dessert Tour." This two-hour stroll through Midtown Sacramento's residential and business district will visit architectural treasures, share stories of the city's past, and include delicious desserts from four of Midtown's most popular purveyors of sweets. Proceeds benefit Sacramento Heritage Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to protecting and maintaining Sacramento's architectural treasures.
For fans of historic architecture, the tour will feature a look at Midtown Sacramento's diverse architectural styles, including 19th century Italianate and Queen Anne, early 20th century Craftsman and revival styles, and even Mid-Century Modern apartment buildings. Those interested in local history will learn about Sacramento's first streetcar line, the first permanent home of the California State Fair, and why midtown Sacramento has a railroad running through the middle of the neighborhood. But a neighborhood is more than just buildings, so the tour will also explore the lives and stories of some of the fascinating people who lived in these neighborhoods, including tavern owners, doctors, department store executives, real estate developers, mad widows, and many more. Board members of Sacramento Heritage Inc., including local historian William Burg, will lead the tour.
This two-hour stroll will cover approximately two miles on foot, including four stops for dessert, including Midtown Village Cafe, Rick's Dessert Diner, Trey B Cakes and Devine Gelateria. A dessert at each stop is included in the tour price.
Tickets are sold via BrownPaperTickets.com and must be purchased in advance, no later than Thursday, February 7. The tour costs $30 and is open to all ages. The tour is limited to a maximum of 30 people, so buy your ticket before they run out!
