Woodland will return to the 1880s at the popular Stroll Through History on Saturday. The event features a Heritage Homes Tour of six private residences and one private garden, as well as bus, bicycle, and walking tours of historic neighborhoods and landmark buildings.
There also will be a pancake breakfast hosted by the Kiwanis Club. Activities start at 8:30 a.m. in Heritage Plaza, Second and Main streets, and will end at 4 p.m.
Homes in Woodland’s Beamer Park neighborhood, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, will be featured from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the 26th annual stroll.
The selection of the Heritage Homes is based upon the age and historical significance of the building and the appropriateness of interior decoration and landscaping to the period of the building.
The landmark buildings that will be open to strollers include the Woodland Elks Lodge, Mojos Restaurant, Woodland Train Depot, Woodland Opera House, Woodland Christian Church and the Yolo County administration building.

The Stroll has a long history in Woodland. In the spring of 1988, Lloyd and Ida Ingraham opened their Victorian home at 620 Cross St. as a fundraiser for the first Stroll through History, which took place in the fall of the same year to celebrate the history of Woodland.

There is no entry fee and no parking fee. Visitors can purchase an open homes tour ticket for $25 until Friday, and $30 at the information booth at Heritage Plaza, at Second and Main streets, on the day of the Stroll. Purchase a bus tour ticket for $15 to ride in air-conditioned comfort.
Money raised during the annual celebration of Woodland is used to improve the Stroll through History event and to fund local historic restoration and community cultural resources.
