 Woodland, Yolo County California

Woodland, Yolo County, PO and County seat, 16 miles northwest of Sacramento, has a population of 3,000, and occupies a pleasant site in a grove of ancient oaks, surrounded by a large extent of exceedingly fertile and productive country. The California Pacific Railroad passes through the place, being the Marysville branch, joining the main, or Sacramento branch at Davisville, 9½ miles southwest. This branch formerly crossed the Sacramento River and continued to Marysville, but the destruction of a section of road by Hood, caused the disuse of the portion north of the river, and at present Knight's Landing, nine miles from Woodland, is the terminus. At Woodland are wine manufactories, breweries, many mercantile establishments, warehouses for the storage of wheat, an extensive flouring mill, church, social and benevolent organizations, a well-established college, the Hesperian, one of the finest public school buildings in the interior of the State, and two newspapers, the Democrat, and Mail, are published weekly.
