Help Us Preserve Woodbury’s Past for Future Generations
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 City Hall, we maintain records such as Census, 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 Woodbury City Hall is open during daytime hours by appointment only. To set up an appointment, call (651) 714-3564 and leave a message .
If you are supportive of the work of the Woodbury Heritage Society, we invite you to become a member. Annual dues are $15 per member.
