CITRUS HEIGHTS, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
Citrus Heights is located in Northern California, in Sacramento County. Citrus Heights’s 2022, estimated population is 86,433. Citrus Heights is 14.8 miles from the city of Sacramento and about 101.6 miles from San Francisco. Although Citrus Heights was founded in the 1800s, it was not incorporated as a city until 1997.
Citrus Heights was built on part of the Rancho Del Paso and Rancho San Juan Mexican land grants. The 1849, Gold Rush road which connected Sacramento and Auburn brought American settlers to the Citrus Heights area. By 1850, the Auburn Road became a major supply route from Sacramento to the mining towns. The horse-drawn wagons took two days to make the 36 mile trip from Sacramento to Auburn. Way Stations or Mile Houses were established in Citrus Heights for the Pioneers to obtain food and lodging. These roadhouses were about a mile apart and consecutively numbered starting with number 13. The 18 Mile House, was known as the halfway house. The 14 Mile House is the only roadhouse still in existence. In May 2012, the California Office of Historical Preservation awarded a Point of Historical Interest Designation to the 14 Mile House.
In 1910, Walt Trainor a land developer purchased large tracts of land and subdivided it into smaller, 5 to 10 acre parcels. Trainor marketed the parcels for sale as potential citrus farms. He named his subdivisions “Citrus Heights.” In 1913, Auburn Boulevard became part of the Lincoln highway, the first transcontinental highway. In 1926, that same route became US Highway 40. Accordingly, the highway brought jobs to the area as various businesses, including restaurants, motels and service stations populated the main highway.
Many jobs were created during World War II at the nearby military airport bases. McClellan Air Force Base was approximately 6.7 miles from Citrus Heights and operated from 1935, until its closure on January 31, 2001. Likewise, Mather Air Force Base was 11.4 miles from Citrus Heights and operated from 1941, until it was decommissioned in 1993.
In 1942, the Ladies Auxiliary fire department was formed since the men had left the area for World War II. Although this type of ladies group was common during the war years, the Citrus Heights Ladies Auxiliary actually fought fires. Like most of California, after World War II, the Citrus Heights population increased significantly. In the 1950s, Sacramento County and Citrus Heights’ population grew and both began changing from a mostly agricultural area to a suburban area.
Although, the city of Sacramento repeatedly wanted to annex Citrus Heights, the County of Sacramento eventually sued Citrus Heights on whether only town residents or county wide residents should vote on incorporation. The United States Supreme Court refused to take the matter, thus upholding the California Supreme Court’s prior ruling, that only residents of the proposed city should vote on incorporation. In 1994, Citrus Heights reached an agreement with Sacramento County regarding incorporation. Finally, in November 1996, Citrus Heights residents voted to incorporate as a city, with its new status commencing on January 1, 1997.
