Affectionately self-proclaimed as the Northshore’s best kept secret, Folsom is the epitome of small-town living. Named after former President Grover Cleveland's wife Frances Folsom Cleveland, this community is known by locals as “the village,” and that’s exactly what you’ll find here: great people uniting in a great quality of life.
Folsom real estate ranges from small single-family residences on large open lots to grand houses on sprawling country estates. Residents enjoy a weekly open market where locals sell their wares. This community is also active in hosting cleanup and restoration projects. Its character and country charm is appreciated by residents and visitors alike.
Although there are less than 1,000 residents, Folsom is home to its own public library, fire station, police department, churches, convenience stores and luncheonettes. The village is well known for its flourishing plant nurseries and beautiful horse farms. The countryside is also dotted with exotic animal farms and The Global Wildlife Center which is home to over 4,000 exotic, endangered, and threatened animals from all over the world.
In Folsom, you’ll find a peaceful, rural life with the all the modern conveniences of Covington and Mandeville just a short drive away
