History & History Related Items

Woodstock history:

Woodstock is over one hundred years old and one of the county's oldest towns.

The first train depot here was built in November, 1879, when the railroad came to town. The city limits were measured out from the depot in 1897. At that time Woodstock has about 960 acres and a population of 300 residents. The area was largely agricultural. By the end of the 19th century the city was shipping out 2,000 bales of cotton each year. Many new and innovative farming techniques were introduced by the local developers.

How was Woodstock named?
Several variations are around about how Woodstock was named. The first and most prominent is that it was from a novel, Woodstock, by Sir Walter Scott. Another is that the railroad stopped here to "stock wood." But the railroad didn't arrive in town until 50 years after the name was assigned to the post office. There is also the theory that a man named Mr. Woodstock settled here and began a school which gave the community its name. The "real" naming story is unsure.
The founding of Woodstock: 1897
