Sacramento County is an original county when California became a
state in 1850 and encompasses approximately 994 square miles in
the middle of the 400 mile long Central Valley, which is
California's prime agricultural region. Sacramento is bordered
by Contra Costa and San Joaquin Counties on the south, Amador
and El Dorado Counties on the east, Placer and Sutter Counties
on the north, and Yolo and Solano Counties on the west.
Sacramento County extends from the low delta lands between the
Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers north to about ten miles
beyond the State Capitol and east to the foothills of the Sierra
Nevada Mountains. The southern most portion of Sacramento County
has direct access to the San Francisco Bay. The county was named
after the Sacramento River, which forms its western border. The
river was named by Spanish cavalry officer Gabriel Moraga for
the Santisimo Sacramento (Most Holy Sacrament), referring to the
Eucharist. Alexander Hamilton Willard of the Lewis and Clark
Expedition is buried in the old Franklin Cemetery.
