Everthing You Never Wanted to Know*

*About my city.
No, I don’t think the article tells/shows all. However, as it includes some link at the bottom, I think it’s a fairly good source of information. Locals would do well to visit and find out how much they don’t know about the place where they live, and take a gander at the “who’s who” of the area.

Points of Interest

1. About Woodland
Woodland is one of those towns that most people have heard of, but don’t exactly know where it is or know anything about it. Many have to ask, “Do you mean Woodland Hills?” Usually it’s best associated as the city 10 minutes from UC Davis. However, Woodland is filled with history, charm, and a truly wonderful place to live

2. If you venture into Central Woodland, you will find Victorian homes from the 1800’s, and matured neighborhoods with fantastic tree lined streets. The city is known as the “City of Trees”,
Then on the West side of town, you will come across some of the most picturesque country estates both old and new, with white picket fences and rimmed with orchards. Once outsiders get the full tour, they usually can’t believe what they have seen.

3. In the 1950’s had the most millionaires per capita of any city in California.

4. Downtown Woodland, with it’s history dating back to the city’s inception, has remained untouched with it’s architecture, and displays one of America’s classic “Main Street USA” styles.

I found some nice pictures of the city Here, but didn’t want to steal, so You have to go out to see them.

  1. I was thinking, just like you expected, not Woodland Hills? My uncle used to live in Woodland Hills, which is how I’ve heard of that one. Thank you for helping me learn something new!

  2. What a neat article! That’s wonderful. Glad I unknowingly inspired you.
