The first European settlement which will become Sacramento, was established by the Swiss adventurer John Sutter. Some years later in times of the California Gold Rush, the city grew from a commercial and agricultural center to a major distribution point, a Western hub for wagon trains, stagecoaches, and riverboats, and a terminus for the First Transcontinental Railroad. The Pony Express has reached Sacramento in 1860 connecting Sacramento with the cities in the east, its usefulness vanished with the arrival of the First Transcontinental Telegraph in 1861.
In recent years Sacramento has become a major influence in northern California culture, it has been recognized as the number one diverse city in California.
