Search Folsom Real Estate For Sale
Start Your Folsom Home Search Here! Folsom Borough is a quiet and very rural community located in the heart of the Pinelands. Live and Let Live is the mantra here. Folsom attracts the independent-rugged types. Many outdoorsmen-women call Folsom home. The local government is not intensely intrusive and the residents like it that way! Zoning prohibits most residential new construction on less than 2 acres — so new construction is sparse, assisting in maintaining the country feel and mature character of the area.
