The City of Woodland is known throughout California for its architecturally significant and historic homes. Since 1989, the City of Woodland Historical Preservation Commission has presented the Heritage Home Award to honor special homes within the community. 

The Heritage Home Award is given in recognition of a home’s aesthetic or historically significant contribution to Woodland’s residential architecture and to recognize homes that have been well cared for or well restored. The award is purely honorary and imposes no requirements of any kind on either present or future property owners.

To date over a 100 Heritage Home Awards have been presented to Woodland homes. These homes, whose dates of construction range from 1862 to 1962, typify Woodland’s rich and diverse architectural resources. Heritage Homes range from 19th century Victorian and Queen Anne residences to 20th century Tudor, Spanish Revival, Colonial Revival, Craftsman Bungalow, French Cottage, Streamline, and Mid-Century styles. 

Each year the Historical Preservation Commission selects recipients for the award from nominations submitted by Commission members or any other interested person. There is no specific age or date of construction required, but historical significance is considered essential for a home to be eligible. To be considered for the award, a home must be a family residence and located within the city limits.   

The Heritage Home Award consists of a Certificate of Recognition and an attractive 7” x 10” oval bronze plaque listing the home’s year of construction. The awards are presented by the Historical Preservation Commission to the current owners of the selected homes in an informal ceremony at City Hall. 

This year’s awards ceremony will be in conjunction with the City’s 150th Anniversary (Sesquicentennial) and 34th year of presenting awards to Heritage Homes in the community. This year’s awards will be presented to  the following six (6) homes:

    Property Address:            Property Owner:

1.    186 Walnut Street         Judy Ann Wiechers

2.    603 Hollister Road        Mark & Karen Hannum

5.    648 College Street        Jose & Simona Villalobos

6.    633 Third Street            Allison Linda Carol

The awards ceremony is free to all residents and or any other interested parties as all are encouraged to attend the awards ceremony.  At the conclusion of the awards ceremony, the Commission will provide light beverages, desserts, and conversation in the Edible Learning Garden.

The ceremony will occur at the same time as the Celebrate Woodland Community Festival event in honor of the City’s Sesquicentennial. The event will begin on Friday, April 8 at 5 PM in Downtown Woodland and include live music, a fire dancer, kids activities, a car show, and more.
