Rick Becton gave a tour of the Leland Stanford Mansion, a 19,000 square foot Victorian era mansion once owned by former California governor and railroad tycoon Leland Stanford. As a pro-Union Civil War governor and president of the Central Pacific Railroad, Leland Stanford negotiated political and business deals at the Mansion that helped complete the transcontinental railroad.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2015 LCV Cities Tour” in Sacramento, California, from September 8-12 to feature the history and literary life of the community.
