Sutter’s Fort Major Walls & Gates Restoration Project Now Complete


Have you noticed Sutter’s Fort lately?  It may be time to plan a visit to one of the area’s most historic — and iconic — destinations.

California State Parks and the Friends of Sutter’s Fort are proud to announce Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park is fully open to the public after the completion of major restoration efforts on the exterior walls, gates and pathways.

While additional restoration projects will continue at the Fort in phases, the recently completed restoration efforts represent the most significant since a major reconstruction effort in the 1890s. The completed restoration projects include restoration of the historic exterior walls, repair or replacement of the east and south gates, upgrades to various pathways in and around the Fort, and seismic stabilization of the historic central building.

Led by California State Parks, the work was coordinated by State Park’s Northern Service Center. The next restoration efforts will include restoration of the interior walls; rehabilitation of the blacksmith and candle making exhibit rooms; and installation of concealed outdoor lighting for the interior courtyards.

All of these important restoration projects have been made possible through a successful combination of public funds and private donations with the support of California State Parks, Friends of Sutter’s Fort and private donors.
