The 2021 Burnett Awards: Celebrating Venerable Sacramento Businesses


Listen: Delta Pick Mello, Executive Director of the Sacramento History Alliance and the Sacramento History Museum

The Burnett Awards is a benefit for two of Sacramento’s Historic Treasures – The Sacramento History Museum and the Center for Sacramento History. Each year, the Sacramento History Alliance honors area businesses that have met the test of time. They may not always be the oldest, but they are old enough – we call them “Venerable”.

The Burnett Awards are named in honor of Burnett Miller – native Sacramentan, politician, philanthropist, business leader and the City’s “Number 1” history buff.
