Yolo California

In 1849, Thomas Cockran built a hotel on the future site of the town of Yolo, which provided accommodation for people traveling along the west side of the Sacramento River. This area became known as Cockran's Crossing. Not long after, James A. Hotton built another hotel and the area became known as Hutton's Ranch or Travelers' Home. In 1857, Hutton's Ranch was renamed and became Cacheville. Cacheville became he Yolo County seat in 1857 with a courthouse being built. A few miles south of Cacheville was the community of Yolo City, later known as Woodland. By 1870, Cacheville had adopted the name Yolo which it remains to be known as to this day.

California is a U.S. state on the West Coast of the United States, along the Pacific Ocean. It borders Oregon to the north, Nevada to the east, Arizona to the southeast, and on the south by the Mexican state of Baja California. California is the most populous U.S. state. Its four largest cities are Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, and San Francisco.

It is the third-largest U.S. state by land area.



The California Gold Rush (18481855) began on January 24, 1848, when gold was discovered by James Marshall at Sutter's Mill in Coloma, California. News of the discovery soon spread, resulting in some 300,000 men, women, and children coming to California from the rest of the United States and abroad. The effects of the Gold Rush were substantial. San Francisco grew from a tiny hamlet of tents to a boomtown, and roads, churches, schools and other towns were built. A system of laws and a government were created, leading to the admission of California as a state in 1850. A unique social structure evolved. New methods of transportation developed as steamships came into regular service and railroads were built. Agriculture, California's first big attraction, developed on a wide scale throughout the state as gold mines produced less. However, the Gold Rush also had negative effects: Native Americans were attacked and pushed off traditional lands, race and ethnic tensions formed, and gold mining caused environmental harm.
