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.
