*Poverty Ridge & Newton Booth Historic District Street Marker Walking Tours:
The NBNA is proud to announce the release of our free self-guided walking tours for the Poverty Ridge and Newton Booth Historic District street markers! The tours are composed of excerpts from the pictorial history: “Sacramento's Newton Booth and Poverty Ridge”, which was authored by a neighborhood resident and board member with support from the NBNA. This historical guide provides a broad view of the Poverty Ridge and Newton Booth neighborhoods from Gold Rush-era to the early 21st century and will be available for purchase in October 2020. All author's proceeds from the sale of the book will go to support our local non-profit, the Ella K. McClatchy Library Friends, which helps to organize and raise funds for reading programs and the structural maintenance of the historic Ella K. McClatchy Library branch. The free self-guided tours are available in PDF form as well as via Google Maps. It is our hope that these tours will serve to help our community become better acquainted with the vibrant and compelling histories of the Newton Booth and Poverty Ridge Historic Districts.
