Isleton in Sacramento County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Isletonís Historic Old Town
In 1874 Dr. Josiah Poole founded the town and built a wharf the following year, giving Isleton access to the outside world and farming began.
The Chinese settled in the town and were joined by Japanese immigrants. Their original home sites were on Jackson Slough Road, south of the present historical district, but were destroyed by fire in 1915. The town was rebuilt at the present location only to burn again in 1926. It was rebuilt once again, however this time the buildings were constructed with metal exterior siding as a fire precaution.
This unique community continues on today with the restoration of these old buildings, reflecting their original heritage.
