More about this marker. In Historic Spots in California, Mildred Hoover notes Union Shed's ideal location, being at a crossroads with roads branching off to Nicolaus, Marysville, Grass Valley, and Auburn. When the California Central Railroad reached Wheatland in 1866, the importance of the staging and teaming business was greatly diminished. In 1868, the Union Shed burned down.
