Town of Woodbridge

In 1852 Jeremiah H. Woods and Alexander McQueen established a ferry across the Mokelumne River at this point. As a result, a new road from Stockton to Sacramento by way of Wood's Ferry was established. In 1858 Woods built a bridge at the site of the ferry from which the town, laid out in April 1859, took its name.

Several 19th Century buildings survive in Woodbridge near the Mokelumne River including the 1865 building pictured here and two national register buildings: the Masonic Lodge and the IOOF Hall.

We could not locate a commemorative plaque for the Town of Woodbridge. Here's a list of other California Historical Landmarks which had no bear flag plaque when we visited them.
