Gunfights in Davis! Bank holdups in Winters! Shootouts on Woodland’s Main Street! Bars closing!

What is this county coming to?

These questions probably were asked by residents of Yolo County in the early 1900s, and they’ll be the focus of the popular Woodland Cemetery Tour on Sunday, Oct. 28, from 1 to 3 p.m. This year, the Yolo County Historical Society will explore the criminal elements of the county as well as the rebelliousness of the local women.

The tour, titled “Rogues and Rebels,” will take place at the Woodland City Cemetery on Cross and West streets. Chris Dreith of Home Improvements in Woodland has written three vignettes using historical characters from the county’s colorful past. Attendees will watch as local actors take part in shootouts, march to close saloons and be influenced by drink and notorious “fallen doves.”

Sheriff Jim Monroe will return to life as he relates stories from his 28 years of service to the county. Students from Dingle School will participate and help tell the story of a time in our history that was like the Wild West.

Tickets are $10 general, $5 for children under 10 and $20 for a family of four. Books sponsored by the Historical Society also will be available for purchase. Proceeds from the fundraiser will help support historical endeavors throughout the county.

For more information, call Kathy Harryman 530-662-2189 or Reva Barzo at 530-867-5800.
