Davisville, Yolo County California

Davisville, Yolo County, PO 9½ miles south west of Woodland. This is a village springing up since the construction of the California Pacific Railroad, which passes through the place. It is situated in the midst of a rich agricultural section, on the north bank of Putah Creek, and is the center of considerable trade.

Fruit of excellent quality and in great variety is grown in the vicinity, and several thousand boxes of raisins were made in 1874, which sold at $2.75 per box of 23 pounds each.

Here the railroad forks, as it comes from the south, one branch going east 14 miles to Sacramento, and the other northerly to Woodland and Knight's Landing, 24 miles.
