Reopening the doors to the past

The Elk Grove House & Stage Stop museum reopened for tours on Sept. 4 after the museum was closed for more than a year and a half, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Visitors were invited to learn more about Elk Grove’s rich history and enjoy the special exhibit of Anabel Brady Gage’s life and her quilt collection. The museum also features the restored 1853 Foulks House that was owned by one of Elk Grove’s pioneer families.
