Elk Grove Historical Society

The Elk Grove Historical Museum

I’m 2014, I lived in Rancho Cordova, and I worked some in Elk Grove. Therefore, I decided to drive to see the historical museum within a city I used to work in.

The Elk Grove Heritage Park has information on the pioneers that came to California.

Specifically there is information on the Lincoln Highway, which was the first gravel road , with various road markers, to connect from the east coast to the west coast.

The widowed Euphemia Foulks moved with five children to Elk Grove. Euphemia and her children were instrumental in the beginnings of the city which has a population of about 170,000 in present day.
