Sacramento is the capital city of California. It is the county seat of Sacramento County and has a current population of nearly 486,500, making it the sixth-largest city in the state. Founded in 1839 and incorporated in 1850, Sacramento is located at the juncture of the Sacramento and American Rivers. The rivers have played a role in various Sacramento industries, from agriculture and transportation to tourism and recreation. As a capital city, Sacramento’s top employers are the State of California, and Sacramento County, followed by the UC Davis Health System. Sacramento is also home to the University of California, Sacramento.

Sacramento’s founder, John Sutter, established a settlement in the Sacramento Valley with the help of the Mexican government in 1839, building an adobe fort and sawmill. When gold was discovered in 1848 at the mill, the resulting gold rush caused the city to expand rapidly into a center of commerce and transportation. In the late 19th century, the transcontinental railroad combined with advances in refrigeration and irrigation to make fruit-growing and food processing major industries in Sacramento. Crystal Cream & Butter was founded in 1901 and is still making local dairy products more than a century later. The Bercut-Richards packing company was established in 1931 in three-year old tomato-canning facility, and served as the Sacramento Army Depot during World War II. Although there has been some decline in agriculture in Sacramento in recent years, there has been an increased focus on tourism, education and healthcare.

Sacramento has a lengthy history of industry and construction, much of it during a period when asbestos-containing materials were widely used. Workers exposed to asbestos may be at risk for mesothelioma, a cancer of the lungs. Mesothelioma doctors in and around Sacramento are listed at the bottom of this page. If you were diagnosed with mesothelioma in Sacramento, you should also consider contacting a mesothelioma attorney for legal advice.
