As its name might suggest, the Elmhurst neighborhood was named for all the trees that provide so much of it with a lush, shady canopy, specifically large elm, ash and oak trees. It was first established by H.A. McClelland as a 250-acre residential subdivision in 1908, and the resulting Elmhurst neighborhood was annexed by the city of Sacramento in 1911.
Today, the boundaries of Elmhurst are defined by Highway 50 to the north, V Street and 2nd Avenue to the south, 57th Street to the east and Stockton Blvd. to the west.
In addition to the trees, these days Elmhurst is notable for its grassy, park-style medians down the middle of wide T Street. Its homes are mostly historic (and mostly remodeled) Craftsman and bungalow-style dwellings. Many of the residents are employed by nearby UC Davis Medical Center. Other points of interest in the Elmhurst area include the Coloma Community Center (formerly the Coloma School) and the Julia Morgan House and Gardens.
