In the heart of Midtown Sacramento, Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park captures the pioneer spirit of families arriving in wagon trains at the dawn of the California Gold Rush. John Sutter built the Fort and his agricultural empire, was critical in the rescue of the tragic Donner Party and served as a diplomat with the Mexican government until it all came crashing down in 1848. A fascinating place to visit for history field trips, kids and adults!


10/23 - 10/24: Haunted Fort


10/23 - 10/24: Haunted Fort

Once a portal for weary pioneers, Sutter's Fort welcomes back the spirits of Sacramento history, who tell their dark tales of murder and disaster.  True stories capture the real drama which ties souls to this icon of the early California.

This is not a horror house, but the lantern lit tours can be startling and your travels through the Fort rooms can be uneven.  Tours last 50-60 minutes.

Not appropriate for children under 8. Tours are arranged in groups of 15 which does not allow for strollers.  If you require additional space to accommodate a mobility device, please contact us.

This is not an opportunity for paranormal investigation which is disturbing to other guests and will not be permitted.  Guests who bring paranormal equipment on tours will be not be allowed to continue and tickets will not be refunded.  Thank you for your understanding.
