In 1882, a Hall of Records was established in Santa Cruz, California within “The Octagon”; which was modeled after a monetary gold piece first minted in San Francisco in 1851.
“The Octagon” served as the Santa Cruz Hall of Records until the 1968, the year the records was moved to the new Santa Cruz County Government Center.
