As you gaze down, you look back in time at Sacramento's original level. The building that once stood here was probably raised in the 1860s, creating this courtyard and providing access to hollow sidewalk segments. Imagine how easily flood waters overcame Sacramento when it existed
at the courtyard's elevation. Is it any wonder Sacramentans fought back by hoisting streets and buildings, on average, ten feet above their original elevations?
