Heritage Park gives visitors the experience of  looking into the past and the rich history of the city of Elk Grove.

The Park grounds consists of

  • The 1850 Elk Grove House & Stage Stop Museum
  • The 1853 Foulks House Museum
  • The 1912 San Joaquin Township Justice Court and Jail Museum
  • The old style Blacksmith Shop
  • The Dennis Buscher Plaza

The park is open for FREE tours every first Saturday of each month (February through October) from noon to 4:00 pm or upon request. We close in November to get ready for our “Old Fashioned Christmas” event.
