In 1869 the branch line of the California Pacific Railroad (Cal-P) was laid, connecting Davisville to Woodland to Knights Landing to Yuba City. The tracks crossed the alley about here, angling from Main and College (then called Railroad Street). In 1872 the line was removed and relaid along what became East Street. Up to 16,000 Chinese men worked on California railroads in the 1860s.

Joe Scarpa created this marker in 2005 with funds provided by the Stroll Through History Committee as part of the Woodland Art Center Dead Cat Alley Nine Lives Project.
