The Naming and the history
Woodbury was established as Red Rock Township in 1858 The name was changed after it was realized that there was a prior Red Rock Town. John Colby named it Woodbury in honor of Levi Woodbury, a Supreme Court of the United States Justice.
Woodbury started out as a farming community with wheat being the first primary crop. It grew into a thriving dairying community, and they raised livestock as well. Many of the earliest settlers were German farmers. Residential and commercial development in Woodbury progressed at a leisurely pace. The absence of a railroad kept it mostly rural until the automobile took over the rails as the primary mode of transportation. 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.
