Photographing the Stanford Mansion


Working for the California Heritage Council, I had the pleasure of photographing this well-preserved and period-decorated Sacramento CA home built in 1856 by prominent Sacramento merchant Shelton C. Fogus. Its design reflected the popular Renaissance Revival style. In June 1861, Leland Stanford bought the Fogus home for $8,000. As the Republican candidate for governor, Stanford felt that the Fogus house would be a fitting residence for California’s chief elected officer.

Three governors conducted the business of the State of California in the Mansion—Leland Stanford, Frederic F. Low, and Henry H. Haight.
