Spectacular Historical Photos of Sacramento in the 1880s

During the 1880s, wheat prices dropped in Sacramento with the railroad’s advent and refrigeration’s introduction. However, the fruit became a significant cash crop due to the advent of the railroad and refrigeration. Because of this, grain ranches profiting from wheat began to bankrupt and close between 1883 and the turn of the 20th century; the ranches’ original owners soon died, and their heirs gave their farms to people seeking them. During this period, there was a land boom, and hundreds of thousands of acres were irrigated by new fruit ranchers. Sacramento’s agriculture, however, was noticeably hampered by the passage of the Chinese Exclusion Act in 1882.
