Sacramento's Fabulous Forties 35TH Annual Holiday Home Tour









Every year since 1973, residents of the Fabulous Forties have opened their homes to the public for the Holiday Home Tour, a self-guided walking tour that benefits Sacred Heart Parish School in East Sacramento. Thousands of visitors from throughout Northern California and Nevada and beyond come to see special homes and their architecture that create an extraordinary neighborhood.



ABOUT THE FABULOUS FORTIES

The Fabulous Forties East Sacramento is home to a neighborhood that is affectionately referred to as the "Fabulous Forties." An area bound by J Street and Folsom Boulevard from 38th to 47th Streets, this historic neighborhood boasts wide avenues, sweeping green lawns and large, prewar (pre-WWI and pre-WWII) homes that have housed many of the city’s most prominent residents.





The neighborhood features grand old houses that were custom built in the early decades of the 20th century, when architects were looking to Europe for design inspiration. As a result, the Fabulous Forties is renowned for its eclectic "Revival" style architecture. Here you find a variety of dwellings: English cottages, Tudor-style homes, Dutch farmhouses, Mediterranean villas, and Craftsman bungalows. No two houses are the same.
