In the early 1800’s, a man named Joseph Libbey Folsom purchased a large tract of land from a family in San Francisco. There was little on the land at that point, but Mr. Folsom proceeded to create Granite City, lobbying government officials to run the new railroad through his town. By 1855, when Mr. Folsom died, his dream had become a reality, and the grateful residents of the area renamed the city Folsom in his honor.
Today, Folsom boasts about 72,000 residents. It is part of the Greater Sacramento area, and Folsom Lake, created in 1956 when the Folsom Dam was constructed, is one of the region’s most popular recreational areas. Folsom Dam is an important part of flood control for the Sacramento Valley, and weekend visitors enjoy a trip to Folsom Lake to bask in the beautiful weather and enjoy their favorite water sports.
Folsom’s small size means that the residents of this city do not have the number of traffic accidents that are common in larger areas of Sacramento. However, the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Reporting System reports that the following accidents occurred in Folsom in the last year:
