Fun Facts About Living in East Sacramento

Historic Roots: Originally established in the mid-1800s as Sutter Township, the area has rich agricultural roots in some of the best farms, dairies, orchards, and nurseries established during the Gold Rush era. Later, in 1910 during the post-WWI economic boom, residential development began, culminating in the building of Sutter Memorial Hospital in 1937. After serving the community for 75 years, the hospital closed in 2015, moving to its new location in midtown. Sacramento City Council then gave the green light to start building the Sutter Park community in 2017, which was named for the well-known hospital that had once resided there.
