Benicia Capitol State Historic Park
Take your history buff over to the state of California’s third capital building at Benicia Capitol State Historic Park. The only state capital before Sacramento to survive, the grounds offer several points of interest for you and your date to explore—from workers quarters to a carriage house to lovely sculpted gardens. You can walk around the park or go inside the restored building and explore the various pieces of reconstructed furniture and other available exhibits. Some of the items on display you’ll see include 1850s desks, a spittoon, a candlestick, and a quill pen. Have you ever visited Benicia Capitol State Historic Park? Tell us about it.
