Benicia Capitol State Historic Park is the site of Californias third seat of government (1853-54.) It is the only pre-Sacramento capitol that survives. The original building has been restored with reconstructed period furnishings and exhibits. The interior includes a board-for-board reconstruction of the buildings original floor with ponderosa pine. The desks, three of which are originals from the Benicia period or earlier, are furnished with a candlestick, a 19th century newspaper, a quill pen and a top hat. Contact the park for school visit fee waivers, school visit reservations or programs, guided tour requests or group visit reservations.
