School History
Sheldon High School was the district’s 5th high school and the 3rd in less than ten years. The name is from the town of Sheldon on Grant Line Road, a place that had been active in the Cosumnes River gold activity of the 1850s. Sheldon is where the wagons were made. Jared Dixon Sheldon, for whom the town was named, was an amazing adventurer, entrepreneur, pioneer, and farmer of the Cosumnes River Sloughhouse area. In 1846, Sheldon obtained title from the Mexican government to 86,000 acres, the Omochumnes Land Grant. In 1851, Sheldon was shot by gold miners who had overrun his property. They objected to the dam he had built to irrigate his crops because it flooded their claims.
