Group Description

Vintage and historic signage cataloging project of signs in the city of Sacramento. Includes neon, lit, painted, dimensional, figurative, terrazzo sidewalk signs, and ghost signs. Gathering photos of existing signs is the first step towards preservation. Long gone signs are welcome too — as a reminder of what was and is now lost. Our signs are a community asset!

Our manifesto:
Sacramento's historic signs provide our city with:
- character
- uniqueness
- a sense of place
- public design/art
- local flavor
- landmarks
- a community identity
- a collective memory

Sacramento's historic signs are:
- iconic
- irreplaceable
- Americana/roadside attractions
- nostalgic
- a link to the past
- becoming increasingly rare
- tell a story about our region and reflect Sacramento’s culture and ethnicity.
