Part of the excitement behind R Street’s emergence as a vibrant and distinctive district rests in the area’s unique history as the State’s first railroad and industrial corridor. Many brick buildings, landmarks, and street elements still reflect the former rail based business activity that existed for over century. Now, instead of warehouses and industrial shops, R Street’s historic structures are now home to some of the best dining, cocktails, entertainment, art and design that Sacramento has to offer. Take a look at where R Street began and learn what makes this district a celebration of Sacramento’s past while looking to the future.
