Allan H. Lindsey is considered to have "founded" El Dorado Hills. In 1959 he purchased 20 parcels of ranch lands totaling about 11,000 acres of what was once the town of Clarksville. The largest pieces of property purchased were the Joerger and Walker ranches.
According to Lindsey's original plan, El Dorado Hills would be developed into 12 distinct villages, each to include a park, arterial streets, a unique architectural style and open space.
Allan Lindsey was on hand, in 2001, when the Allan Lindsey Park was opened to the public, named in his honor. In 2003, at 82 years of age, Allan Lindsey passed away. This park commemorates his vision that created today's El Dorado Hills.
