The Historic District is the heart of Folsom, rich in history and bursting with charm. Known as the ‘Heart’ of Folsom, the Historic District began in the 1850’s. Gold prospectors, settlers and the Pony Express rode through the center of town. The West’s first passenger train was a welcomed event. Fires destroyed many businesses in the 1860s and 1880s. New brick buildings replaced wood structures and new water mains and fireplugs provided more fire safety.

By 1915 autos were the favored mode of travel and the Sutter Street segment of the Lincoln Highway opened. This was part of the first transcontinental highway from New York to San Francisco. Sutter Street became the heart of Folsom’s business district housing the bank, drug stores, movie theater, hotels, and more.
