Hoboken, a tent town in this area, began in early January, 1853 after floods had halted business in Sacramento City. River steamers landed here and hundreds of teams loaded supplies for the mining camps. An election held with 1000 electors produced 1757 ballots. The Magnolia Saloon was City Hall. By Mid-February 1853, Hoboken was abandoned as the water receded in Sacramento City.

It is a high point in Sacramento History
