Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento by 


Judge Edwin B Crocker purchased the land and buildings on the corner of 3rd and O Streets in 1868 and commissioned Seth Babson, a local architect to redesign the existing home into an Italianate mansion and to design a gallery building to display his and his wife’s growing art collection. While the mansion went through numerous renovations over the years, in 1989, a renovation resrored the historic facade. Edwin Crocker served on the California Supreme Court and was the brother of Charles Crocker, one of the “Big Four” railroad barons. Crocker’s widow presented the Art Gallery and collection to the City of Sacramento the contents of which were valued at more than $500,000,000 at the time.
