Landmark Building Tours
Landmark Buildings Tours & Events 2017
Dingle Elementary School
10 AM to 12:30 PM – 625 Elm Street
History Club students will be dressed in Victorian period costumes and will teach kids to play old-fashioned children’s games–graces, rolling hoops, croquet, and marbles.
There will be copies of old school photos that kids can handle, and displays and time-lines that will help children explore the past and experience a hands-on interaction with local history. Light refreshments will be served.
Woodland’s Southern Pacific (SP) Train Station is unique. SP had a standard design for its passenger stations. Woodland has perhaps the last of these stations in its original configuration. Sacramento Valley Historical Railways has restored the station to its original grandeur. Sit in the waiting room and pretend you are in another era.
The depot was built in 1911. It is the only remaining of four train depots that served Woodland. The building has witnessed many historical events. Many famous people walked through. The depot saw years of decline and decay as train travel declined. A concerted effort by a coalition of historical preservation groups, the City of Woodland, and many individuals and businesses saved the building from destruction.
The depot is open from 10 AM until 2 PM on Stroll Day. It is located at the corner of Lincoln Avenue and Sixth Street.
