To get to your first pin
Here’s a hint to where you need to head.
You’re not moving toward shops
but towards some train tracks instead.
Once you are at your location look for the granite column with a plaque for Joseph Folsom for whom Folsom was named.
Joseph Folsom Plaque
Good job finding the Joseph Folsom Plaque!
- Joseph Folsom was a U.S. Army officer and real estate investor in the early days of California's statehood.
- The city of Folsom was originally named Granite City by Joseph Folsom when he bought the land for the town.
- The town was renamed Folsom after Joseph Folsom died of pneumonia at age 38.
The end of the plaque calls Folsom "an honorable Clamper". What do you think a "Clamper" is?
