|Old Hall of Records, Woodland, California|
The Yolo County Archives is the repository for government and private records that document the Yolo County’s history from its creation in 1850 to the present. Included in the collection are the official records of the Board of Supervisors, court cases, probates, property assessments and deeds, voter registration, reclamation districts, and schools, as well as over 1,000 maps and blueprints. Private records include photographs, church, cemetery and organization records, newspapers, oral histories and corporate records.
