Built like an Egyptian


This building sits across the river from Old Sacramento. People often refer to it as the “pyramid” building – it is not a pyramid because a pyramid has a pointed top. This design is called a ziggurat building. If you look up “ziggurat” in the dictionary, the definition reads, “originally intended to be a pyramid, but they ran out of bricks.”

This building is now leased out to private and government organizations. It was originally owned by the now-defunct Money Store, until they ran out of money. Obviously, they didn’t blow their money on bricks.
