Last night the city council voted to officially give four Sacramento locations landmark status.

Gunther’s Ice Cream, the Iva Gard Shepard Garden and Arts Center, the Sacramento County Courthouse and the Freeport Chase bank are now considered Sacramento Historic Landmarks.

The city had narrowed the list down from about 20 locations to the final four, to join the long list or local landmarks. 

What do the spots have in common? “A lot of this is our history,” Vice Mayor Steve Hansen told CBS 13. “It’s part of the legacy that we leave to our children. I think they’re each very special.”
