NEWTON BOOTH        

The Newton Booth neighborhood is bounded by R Street to the North, Hwy 50 to the South, Business 80 Freeway to the East, and 24th Street to the West. Also within the neighborhood is the Newton Booth Historic District. The neighborhood was named for the Newton Booth Assembly School built in the 1920's at the intersection of 26th & V Streets. The School was so named in honor of Newton Booth, California's 11th Governor. Booth, a gold rush era merchant headquartered in Old Sacramento, was an active player in the fledgling days of our City. The Newton Booth neighborhood was designated a Sacramento Historic District by the City Preservation Commission in 2014. It is characterized by craftsman bungalows but includes several Four-Squares, Victorians, and Tudors amongst other architectural styles. The neighborhood also consists of a broad and diverse population, serving as home to young professionals, retired-boomers, and growing families alike. Temple Coffee, the Sacramento Natural Foods Co-Op, and Revolution Wines are but a few of the many businesses interspersed between charming homes in this tree-lined and pedestrian friendly district.
