Life in Folsom
Nestled in the Sierra Nevada foothills, Folsom is a modern town richly steeped in California history, from its founding during the California Gold Rush to its connection to The Man in Black. Folsom is also the site of many firsts, including the inaugural railway connection to the West and California’s first college. And yes, it is indeed the site of Folsom Prison, made famous by Johnny Cash and his signature song, “Folsom Prison Blues.”

Bidwell Street.
