Photographs of Yolo

 

Town of Yolo & Nearby Area, California, located off of I-5, north of the town of Woodland. (The town of Yolo was previous known as Cochran’s Cross, Hutton’s Ranch, Travelers’ Home, and Cacheville.) Hutton's Ranch or "Travelers' Home" was originally known as Cochran's Cross. It later became known as Cacheville (Photographs taken by Peggy B. Perazzo, July 2005, used with permission.)

“Yolo, the former county seat, is situated on Cache Creek, and near it is the largest almond orchard in the world. The Yolo olive oil factory is situated here, an enterprise of more than ordinary interest and importance.” (from “Woodland, California,” By. R. A. Thompson, excerpt from Out West, Vol. XVII, No. 1, July, 1902, pp. 120-135.)

According to the National Register of Historic Places web site, the Yolo Branch Library (also known as the Yolo Carnegie Library) was added to the Register in 1990 as Building #90001810. William H. Weeks was the architect of the Bungalow/Craftsman style building. The period of significance is listed as between 1900 and 1924. (The entry lists the library as being located at 200 Sacramento Street, although at the time of my visit, the address was shown as 37750 Sacramento Street.)
