Summary  The Natoma Water & Mining Co. brought a special excursion train from San Francisco in April of 1889 to promote sales of cultivated land at Natoma, four miles west of Folsom. Business and residence lots numbering 180 in the town of Folsom were offered as well, and this fragile fold-out map and information brochure shows each of the 50' x 140' lots offered, from the American River at Leidersdorff to Bidwell Street at the high part of town. One thousand acres of prime farm land out of the 8,454 acres claimed by the Natoma Co. were put up for auction that April, and the 1889/1890 Sacramento City Directory stated that there were already 200 acres in orchard and 1,800 acres in vines. The company also owned the 16-mile-long Natoma Canal, with a guaranteed supply of water for irrigation.
