ELK GROVE, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
Elk Grove is located in Northern California, in Sacramento County. Elk Grove’s current population is over 178,000. Elk Grove is situated 17 miles from the city of Sacramento and about 101 miles from San Francisco. Although Elk Grove was founded in 1850, it was not incorporated as a city until July 2000, making it the first city to incorporate in California during the 21st Century.
The indigenous people in the Elk Grove area were the Miwok Indians. The Miwok nation was the principal Native People in California. The Miwok lived along the Cosumnes River in the Elk Grove area down to the Yosemite Valley. The Elk Grove area was plentiful in acorns, fish and Tule Elk. In the 1800s, the Spanish explorer Gabriel Moraga assessed that the Miwok population was no less than 11,000 natives.
The city of Sacramento acquired its name from Gabriel Moraga in the early 1800s. In 1848, Gold was discovered in the California foothills bringing many people from San Francisco to the area. In 1850, James and Sarah Hall built the Elk Grove hotel at the stagecoach stop. Folk lore says James Hall named the area, Elk Grove. Elk Grove became a core center for gold miners in the surrounding area. Also, in 1850, passengers from Sacramento and San Francisco would disembark at the Elk Grove stage stop and stay at the Elk Grove Hotel.
In 1868, the Central Pacific Railroad opened a railway Depot Station a mile from the Elk Grove stage stop. A brand-new hotel and several businesses sprouted in the new locale. In 1869, the post office also moved to the new downtown rail depot area.
Elk Grove was agriculturally based, producing crops of wheat and barley. In the 1980’s Elk Grove blossomed into a suburban community with easy access to Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay area. Elk Grove has grown exponentially since 2000—it has grown over 119% since 2000. There are over 100 parks in Elk Grove that are operated by the Cosumnes Community Service District.
