National Register of Historic Places in Sacramento County
When it was nominated for the National Register of Historic Places in 1986, the Alta Mesa Farm Bureau Hall was the principal surviving structure associated with the history and development of the rural community of Alta Mesa.
The Hall served as the center of local community activities including social gatherings, school events, public meetings and Farm Bureau activities. From 1922 to 1976, it was the site of the Alta Mesa Fair, one of the last rural one-day community fairs in California.
Adapted from the NRHP nomination submitted in 1986.
In March of 1987, just one year after it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Alta Mesa Hall burned to ashes in a fire which many think was set by young vandals.
The only structure left on the property is a restroom.
