The 1853 Foulks House is currently being restored on the museum grounds. It is the oldest remaining residence in Elk Grove. It was built by Euphemia Foulks, a widow, who with her five children crossed the plains by wagon train in 1852. The family went on to become prominent Elk Grove citizens. Currently the plans have been prepared, a contractor assigned, and inside demolition has already begun. As you can see by the photos, there is a lot of prep work and surveying being done as we tear out the inside. We know it looks bad, but we have restored buildings before and you will like it when its done. It is a big project, but we hope to have the inside totally restored before the end of 2018.
