Curtis Park’s History
Sacramento’s Curtis Park by Dan Murphy
The book has five chapters showing the history of the Curtis Park neighborhood. It begins with the farms and ranches of the 1850s and traces them through the streetcar suburbs developed before and after the turn of the century. The fourth chapter addresses the early automobile suburbs of the 1920s and the last chapter looks at the changes in our landscape since then.Dan Murphy graciously assigned the royalties for the book to the Sierra Curtis Neighborhood Association.
