These tours each explore an angle of the history of land speculation in Sacramento. Squatterville starts near Front and I Streets in Old Sacramento and ends at 4th and J, where the 1850 Squatters' Riot reached its violent conclusion. Homesteading the Grid starts in Crocker Park at 2nd and N, and travels down the waterfront to R Street.

I'm a Sacramento native who grew up with no idea of what really happened in my hometown's early days. I'm trying to set the record straight. Full profile

My husband and I found Andrew's tour of Old Sacramento and its history both interesting and informative. He shared unknown facts about the early settlement of the city and even brought to life a few fallacies. I would highly suggest this tour, especially if you enjoy history or economics.
