1. The Gibson House Marker
Inscription. William Byas Gibson came to California from Missouri by mule team in 1850 at the age of 19. In 1856 he started construction of the Gibson House which became the nucleus of his subsequent 3,000 acre estate. He married Mary Cook and they had 3 sons. The family specialized in breeding cattle and large scale farming. The Gibson family played a major role in the agriculture and commercial development of Yolo County.
