History

Woodland was officially incorporated on March 27, 1906.

Woodland is perhaps best known as the home of Hulda Klager (1863 - 1960), who was a prolific breeder of lilacs. Her house and lilac gardens were saved in 1964 from being torn down to make room for an industrial site, and are currently maintained as a state and National Historic Landmark by the Lilac Society.

The Cedar Creek Grist Mill, a National Historic Landmark, is located near Woodland.
