Folsom Cash Trailblazers: 7 Donors Behind the Cash Trail

3/28/2023 | By Johnny Cash Trail| Johnny Cash Trail

The Folsom Cash Trailblazers series highlights the generous members of our Donor Wall who are helping to bring the Johnny Cash Trail Art Experience to Folsom.

The Johnny Cash Trail Donor wall stands near the corner of Folsom  Lake Crossing and East Natoma Street. The monument is a series of weathered steel panels bearing the names of some of the trail's generous supporters. 

The Donor Wall was installed in 2017, fabricated using elegant, durable Corten Steel as a reminder of these donors' enduring gifts to Folsom and the art pieces they're helping to create. Their gifts fund the creation of the trail and the fabrication of art pieces such as the trail's first artwork - Cash's Pick

Today we're highlighting 7 names you may recognize from the Donor Wall as organizations that have generously supported the trail.
