Then and Now

Woodbury was established as the Red Rock Township in 1858  The name was changed after it was realized that there was already a Red Rock Town in Minnesota.  The city was then named Woodbury to honor Levi Woodbury, a United States Senator and Supreme Count Justice (among other government-related positions). Woodbury was mostly woods when the first settlers arrived. It quickly turned into a farming community with wheat as the primary crop. They also grew corn, potatoes, and barley, and later on soybeans. It grew into a thriving dairying community because the land was particularly amenable to it, and they made leaps and bound in agriculture technology.  Many of the earliest settlers were from Germany and eastern states. Residential and commercial development in Woodbury progressed at a leisurely pace. The first housing development, Woodbury Heights, was built in 1955. After that, urban development took over, and the area slowly changed from farmland to metropolitan. The Village of Woodbury formed in 1967, and Woodbury become a city in 1974. By 1975, farming had mostly disappeared from Woodbury. In the 1980s, commercial and residential development started taking off, and the population doubled by the 1990s. It's the fastest growing cities in Washington County. It went from 10,000 people in 1980 to roughly 46,500 in 2000 to about 64,500 in 2012.
