One of the most photographed houses in Woodland, California is the Gable Mansion. Central Woodland is known for it's lovingly restored Victorians and the Gable Mansion is perhaps the best example. Usually we can just admire these beautiful homes from the street but on Sept. 11 the home will be open for a tour, benefiting the American Red Cross of Yolo County.
The house will be open from 11-3, tickets are $20 and can be purchased here or by calling Yolo County Red Cross at 530-662-4669.
The home, at the corner of Cross Street and First Street in Woodland, was built in 1885 for the brother Amos and Harvey Gable. The cost was $16,000. It is a a California State Landmark, as "an outstanding example of 19th century Victorian Italianate architecture".
