History of Citrus Heights Told Through Photographs
- 07/11/2011

Arcadia Publishing

More Info on This Book: Citrus Heights

The newest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series is Citrus Heights from local author James Van Maren. The book boasts more than 200 vintage images and memories of days gone by.

Citrus Heights, while only recently incorporated, is a town with roots that go back 150 years. Fields of lavish, green grass and groves of beautiful oak trees greeted earlier settlers, who saw fertile land for farming and sustaining growing families. With early residents' insights for agricultural use and development of roads, schools, and places of worship, Citrus Heights has grown from a farming settlement to a modern suburb and a favorite place for families to thrive in Sacramento County.

The Van Maren family was one of Citrus Heights' earliest founding settlers, and this book of vintage photographs is culled largely from the collection of community stalwart Jim Van Maren, whose great grandparents started farming here in the 1850s. Highlighting such achievements as the first grammar school in the eastern part of Sacramento County, this collection is an inspiration to the community spirit.

Assisted by Citrus Heights Historical Society president Wilma Camilleri and Citrus Heights History and Art Commission chairwoman Teena Stern, Van Maren documents in these images the journey of this singular town through the decades, with insights that only locals can provide.

Highlights of Citrus Heights:
• Native Americans
• Trek to the Gold Fields
• Land and early settlers
• Early government
• Education and worship
• Growth of the community
• War years
• Spirited people
