It was the pioneering farmers of the mid-1800s who sowed the seeds of commerce that are reflected in the thriving economy of Woodland today. These were men of the earth who recognized Yolo County`s rich soil, temperate climate and effective transportation systems. In the winter of 1853 Henry Wycoff settled in a dense grove of oak trees and opened a small store; soon other businesses followed suit, including a store owned by Major F. S. Freeman. He offered free lots to those who would clear the land and build homes, and before long the settlement of Yolo County was renamed Woodland; in 1862, the Yolo County seat transferred to Woodland from present-day West Sacramento.
