After driving on Interstate 5 for just a short period of time, crossing over the Sacramento River, in the middle of open fields where you could see for miles, we exited onto Main Street and followed the signs to the Historic district. At first I wondered if we would find anything we really wanted to see. Modern buildings, box stores and at one point a section that had every fast food place you could think of all in one square block was all we saw, but soon we were awarded with the hints of things to come. An older factory, lined up Sacramento river tour trains lined up on the tracks to my right, and soon a sign welcoming us to the historic district.
We at first drove down the main street and was instantly charmed with the cafe's and antique stores that inter- mingled with every day stores. we oohed and awed over architecture of buildings on Main Street. I spotted the Opera House and a few other historic high lights, and so we decided we would get out and stroll just enough to snap a few photos. I hope you enjoy as much as we did at just taking a peek into the past via Historic Woodland California.
|Sits just off Main street, opens to a lovely park area.|
|One day will come back and sit on this patio to eat and then explore shops!|
|side street off of Main.|
|Notice a "V" instead of a "U" for the word Public *giggle*|
|Front of Library faces next street over from Main.|
|The Firehouse...now just administrator offices and mini museum.|
|Of course I found something with a date from the 20's on it!|
Tomorrow a drive through the neighborhoods behind Main Street and a few jewel in the crown of Woodland Ca.
