BUYING A HOME IN WOODBURY, MN
Originally named Red Rock, after a sacred stone supposedly painted by the famous Dakota Chief Little Crow, the town was renamed in 1859 when the state legislature discovered another Red Rock Township in Minnesota. Woodbury was named after Judge Levi Woodbury of New Hampshire, a friend of the first town board chairman.
The first settlers came to Woodbury in 1844. Most of the area’s early settlers migrated from the eastern states and from Germany. Immigrants also came from Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland, Scotland, and Denmark. Over the years the people of Woodbury have contributed in many ways to the rich heritage that the city enjoys today.
The township began building its first sewer and water lines in 1961. The first full-time employee was hired in 1965 and the first police officer in 1968. The Village of Woodbury was formed in 1967 and by 1974 Woodbury was a city. By the 1970s dairy farming was disappearing, and much of the farmland was owned by investors or retired farmers. In 1975 Woodbury had 2,504 residences, an industrial park, four schools, six churches, a small shopping center, radio stations, Howard Johnson complex, and several offices and commercial buildings scattered throughout the community.
