9781609494254: Sacramento's K Street: Where Our City Was Born

From its founding, K Street mirrored the entrepreneurial development of California's capital city. Initially the storefront for gold seekers trampling a path between the Sacramento River and Sutter's Fort, K Street soon became the hub of California's first stagecoach, railroad and riverboat networks. Over the years, K Street boasted saloons and vaudeville houses, the neon buzz of jazz clubs and movie theaters, as well as the finest hotels and department stores. For the postwar generation, K Street was synonymous with Christmas shopping and teenage cruising. From the Golden Eagle and Buddy Baer's to Weinstock's and the Alhambra Theatre, join historian William Burg as he chronicles the legacy of Sacramento's K Street, once a boulevard of aspirations and bustling commerce and now home to a spirit of renewal.

About the Author:

William Burg moved to Midtown Sacramento in 1993. In 2003 he became interested in local history and neighborhood activism, returning to college and graduating from Sacramento State University's Public History program in 2010. He joined Sacramento Old City in 2007 and became president in 2012. This is his sixth book about Sacramento.

Review:

"Sacramento's K Street: Where Our City Was Born is an illustrated history of the commercial heart of the town. Author William Burg traces the street's evolution from Gold Rush storefront, through the boom times of hotels, department stories and movie palaces, up to contemporary downtown renewal." --The Sacramento Bee
