In its heyday, Woodland was among California's wealthiest cities. Established by gold seekers and entrepreneurs, it later became an agricultural gold mine. The legacy of the old land barons can be seen in the restored Victorian and Craftsman architecture downtown; the best examples can be found south of Main Street on College, Elm, 1st, and 2nd streets. Budget cuts have led to extremely reduced hours for the Yolo Historical Museum (www.gibsonhouse.org) and the 1896 Woodland Opera House (www.woodlandoperahouse.org), so the town's undisputed top attraction is the delightful Heidrick Ag History Center.
