Davis Heritage Buildings: How Many to Start With? How Many Left?

Up one level

PDF files of John Lofland's Yolo County Historical Society booklet with the above title. In Dec. 1999-Jan. 2000, Lofland compared buildings standing at that time with those on the 1945 Sanborn map of Davis. From this he identified all still-standing buildings and calculated city-wide and neighborhood survival percentages. This booklet reports the results of that research. The pages reproduced here are in the printed format from which the booklet was assembled after printing. For example, pages 1 and 20 form the front and back covers. Pages 2 and 19 form the inside front and inside back covers, and so forth.
