Term: Sacramento, Waushara Co. [origin of place name]
Possibly named by the father of Mrs. Lillian Hatch Chalmer. Her father had just come back from the California gold rush and named the town Sacramento. It was absorbed into the town of Berlin. It was once the county seat.

H., on section 35, town 18, of range 13 E., Waushara county, on south side of Fox river, being in south east corner of the county. It has a healthy and pleasant location in the openings, on an inclined plane, above the banks of the river, and is the only river town in the county. It was laid out in 1851, by Thomas J.

Population 250, with 40 dwellings, 3 stores, 3 hotels, a warehouse, timber yard, &c. It commands the river trade of a large section of country."
