About Woodbury Heritage Society

The mission of the Woodbury Heritage Society is to preserve and document Woodbury’s history and to aid residents of our community in learning and understanding more about Woodbury’s early years.

The Woodbury Heritage Society is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization founded in October 1983.  A board of directors governs the society’s activities. Elections to the board are held each spring at the annual meeting. A newsletter is sent to all members to provide news of the organization.

Membership meetings are held occasionally during the year, presenting programs of interest to both long-time and new residents of the community. These programs have featured Woodbury’s country schools, early roads in the city, family history nights, oral history workshops, gardening with heirloom plants, and educational tours. An annual potluck is held during the holiday season.

In our research room at the Public Works building, we maintain records such as census information, church and land records, and family histories.  Help with genealogical research is available by appointment. In recent years requests for information from our records have come from school classes, scout groups and local media, in addition to family history researchers, both local and out-state. The research room at the Public Works building is open during daytime hours by appointment only. Please leave a message at (651) 714-3564 or send us an e-mail at [email protected] to arrange a time to use the research room.
