The Constitution is rarely removed from its temperature and humidity-controlled vault.

It was signed in 1849 and a second constitution was signed 30 years later following a constitutional convention.

There have been more than 500 amendments in the years since.

The state archives open house is this Saturday in Sacramento. Admission is free.
