The history the community of Arden Arcade is documented in the “Sacramento ALC Historical Study 82”, Ranch Del Paso, Office of History, Sacramento Air Logistics Center, McClellan Air Force Base, California, March 1983, by Raymond Oliver. Originally part of a Mexican land grant deeded to John Sutter, the Rancho Del Paso grant was negotiated from the Mexican governor by John Sutter on August 10, 1843. Sutter then deeded the Rancho Del Paso to Eliab and Hiram Grimes and John Sinclair. Samuel Norris was the next owner of Rancho Del Paso, then James Haggin. During the years 1862-1905, James Ben Ali Haggin took over the Rancho, where he became known for breeding race horses. One of the horses bred on the Rancho, Ben Ali, won the 12th Kentucky Derby in world record time. To ship his horses, Haggin built a railroad track from his ranch, that went northeast toward the current day Union Pacific railroad tracks located northeast of our current day Capitol City Freeway along Arcade Blvd. On this site Haggin’s staff built 24 barns with 64 stalls each plus some out buildings. It was here that he would ship his horses mostly to Kentucky, some eventually shipping around the world
