Summary
Charles Wright and Howard Kimbrough began buying and selling agricultural land in the Sacramento area in 1893. They placed advertisements in newspapers around the country and enticed settlers to come to the Golden State, plant their own plots, and reap the harvests. This furrowed farmland may have originally been sold by Wright and Kimbrough, but by 1908 they had geared up for sales of residential tracts and the fields and fertile rows of crops became part of the 40 subdivisions the company offered that year. This undated photo indicates that this view was taken looking east from tract #40.
