About East Sacramento
Originally developed during the 1920s – 1940s, East Sacramento has managed to maintain a “small town” atmosphere with an old-fashioned, neighborhood feel. Stately mansions mingle comfortably with more modest brick homes on streets shaded by generous canopies of sycamore and elm trees. Charming bungalows and quaint cottages are often within walking distance of some of the city’s finest cafes and shops.
This rich architectural style, coupled with many small neighborhood business districts, makes East Sacramento one of Sacramento’s most coveted neighborhoods. Two U.S. presidents are most associated with East Sacramento; William McKinley, namesake of our popular McKinley Park, and Ronald Reagan, who lived in the neighborhood during his eight years as governor of California.
