Senator Garage celebrates 85 years
NEWS-LEDGER — NOV 23, 2011 (published here with additional photos)
The historic Senator Garage building at 521 C Street in northern West Sacramento celebrated its 85th birthday on Oct. 1 with a party. The occasion was also used to re-dedicate a plaque commemorating a local courthouse “somewhere” near that site in the mid-1800s, before the local court was made obsolete (“stolen”) by Woodland.
