Established in the early 1900s by H.A. McClelland, Elmhurst is a piece of history in modern-day Sacramento. Over its 250 acres, you will find a quiet neighborhood that has many ranch style homes with large yards for families. These older, more established homes and the towering elm, oak and ash trees add to its charming feel as a place for a peaceful way of life.
Elmhurst has great walkability and ease of transportation for those employed at the UC Davis Medical Center, which is situated next to the border of this neighborhood. As such, a large percentage of the residents is affiliated with the medical center.
Its boundaries are delineated by U.S. Highway 50, which reduced the span of the neighborhood when it was built decades ago; Stockton Boulevard; 65th Street; V Street and Second Avenue. Though, the most widely known and travelled street through the neighborhood is T Street, which was formerly named California Boulevard. Once Sacramento expanded its city’s borders into the Elmhurst area, California Boulevard was renamed along with street names in other communities.

Its early beginnings have meant that the neighborhood has seen many changes come and go or others never brought to fruition. One example of change is the building of the Elmhurst School, later renamed to Coloma School, which lasted over 50 years before closing its doors in 1978. The building was then repurposed into the Coloma Community Center. However, a change was planned in the early 1900s that never got off of the ground – the streetcar expansion into Elmhurst and reaching to the Fairgrounds. It was announced and celebrated, but the idea was lost to the turbulence of the times.
Inside of the Elmhurst neighborhood is a true gem – its elementary school. Phoebe A. Hearst Elementary School has been rated a 10 out 10, which is an astounding feat to accomplish. For middle and high schools, there are several area public and private educational institutions available to the residents of Elmhurst.
