Not So Historic Old Folsom

Kelly and I live about equal distance, but in opposite directions, of historic downtown Folsom. The historic part of downtown Folsom is seeped in the old west - It was the last stop on the Pony Express and an integral part of the gold rush of 1849 (and of course, the prison). Unfortunately, it looks like we are losing some of the old world charm (see below), due to the assault of commerce.I just saw this sign yesterday. It looks like they are putting up a parking garage and condos across the street from The Black Rooster.
This is probably not good.
