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.
