The New White House in Old Town

White House
 Hello and welcome to Local Fruit. The entry this week is just for fun!  The house is taking shape and is wrapped in white moisture barriers – Tyvek on the exterior walls and a roofing under layer on the roof surfaces.  It is all white right now, and very visible from across the river.

This photo shows site work at the old rail yard which is being redeveloped in Historic Folsom.  Combined with the City of Folsom’s renovations on Sutter Street and the facades being rebuilt, the old merchant district is beginning to sparkle again.  The City is celebrating with a grand party on May 7th, 2011.  For news, go to .

These photos were taken from across the American River and provide a glimpse of why we enjoy Old Folsom so much.  The area has character: history, wildlife, and plenty to see and do. Within the Historic District are charming neighborhoods, a state recreation area with river access and bike paths, restaurants and funky retail shops.  There is plenty to see and do, with street festivals and events throughout the year.
