WELCOME TO THE WOODLAND TRAIN DEPOT HISTORICAL MUSEUM
The Woodland Train Depot is valued treasure in Yolo County. As a member of the Sacramento Valley Historical Railways, it has been recognized on the Registry of National Historic Places. It is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to educating the public about railroads and railroad history and to the preservation and operation of historic railroad equipment and structures. It was built in 1911 as the Woodland Southern Pacific Train Depot, the third of four train depots built in Woodland and the only original still remaining.
The Woodland Train Depot is a place for the community to gather as well as a unique venue for meetings, gatherings and special events. This is largely due to the construction of modern restroom facilities completed in 2020 through the generosity of local Rotary Clubs. Volunteers on the first Saturday of each month are available to share information about the property, educate the public and encourage membership to support this valuable piece of Woodland History.
Each member of our team has a passion for history and for our train depot.
The Woodland Train Depot is a small and active organization that welcomes new members. No matter what your interests or how limited your skills, your help is needed and will be appreciated.
