Yolo County Place Names –
Past and Present
The list indexed above is a compilation of Yolo County place
names of the past and the present that I located in various
sources. Many of these place names are no longer on the maps
of today. I have tried to indicate the locations of the sites
whenever I could find them or references to them. This will
be an ongoing project to collect (and to correct) and to add
as many Yolo place names as can be found. I have tried to list
towns, districts, rivers, creeks, and sloughs, and other landmarks
of interest, but I did not list the names of individual roads
except as descriptions of the locations of the locales.
Located at the end of the list is a list of the sources used
to compile these names. The numbers in parentheses refer to
the source from which the information was obtained, although
in some cases a site appeared on more than one source. The place
names that are followed by (7) or (9) appear on the present-day
maps (1999) dated within the last few years that I checked.
The place names that are followed by an asterisk (*), do not
appear on the present-day maps that I checked.
As many of the names were obtained from old, difficult-to-read
maps and various other sources (some which were undocumented),
the list probably contains some errors. Peggy
Note: For online links, go to the appropriate place
name on the list and look in the far right column.
