FOLSOM, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
Folsom is located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, in Sacramento County, California. Folsom’s current population according to the U.S. Census 2022 estimate is 83,269. Folsom is 24.1 miles from the city of Sacramento and about 108.4 miles from San Francisco. Although Folsom was settled in the1850s, during the Gold Rush, it was not incorporated as a city until April 20, 1946.
The indigenous people in the Folsom area were the Maidu or Nisenan Indians. The Maidu villages extended from the Sacramento Valley all the way to the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The Maidu name translates to “The People.” The Maidu were hunters and gatherers and subsisted on acorns, nuts, berries, wild animals and fish. The city of Folsom founded the Nisenan Community Park to honor the native tribes that lived in the area for centuries.
Folsom sits on part of the 35,000 acre Rancho Rio de los Americanos land grant owned by William Alexander Leidesdorff, the first black.-biracial United States citizen, a wealthy businessman, and one of the most important figures in the founding of San Francisco. William Alexander Leidesdorff, age 38, died on May 18, 1848, just after Gold was discovered on his land. Gold was first discovered along the south bank of the American River in the area known as Negro bar, which was one of the earliest established camps by Black miners.
Joseph Libbey Folsom purchased the Rancho Rio de los Americanos from William Alexander Leidesdorff’s heirs in Jamaica for $75,000. A legal dispute followed the sale but Joseph L. Folsom was ultimately granted title to Rancho Rio de los Americanos by the California Supreme Court.
Folsom hired Theodore Judah to establish a town and they named it “Granite City.” Folsom had the foresight to plan the town as a railroad depot even though railroads were not even in California at that time. Joseph Folsom died in 1855, before the first train arrived in the city of Folsom from Sacramento on February 22, 1856. Granite city was renamed Folsom in Joseph Libbey Folsom’s honor.
In 1880, Folsom Prison was opened after inmates helped construct the prison to relieve over-crowding at San Quentin Prison. In 1895, Folsom Powerhouse produced the first long-distant transmission of electricity, running electricity 22 miles from Folsom to Sacramento.
In 1955, the Folsom Dam was completed which resulted in growth in Folsom. The dam provided flood protection and hydroelectric power, as well as water for commercial and industrial use. Folsom Dam also created Folsom Lake and Lake Natoma, which attracted many tourist to the area.
Folsom’s largest employers are Intel Corporation, Micron Technology, Agree Ya Solutions, California State Prison, and Folsom Prison. Folsom has over 50 miles of bike and hiking trails; and many bridges, including the Rainbow Bridge and the Johnny Cash Bridge.
