History of Woodland

The Town of Woodland, formerly known as Township No. 14 Range 3, was surveyed for settlement by Lore Alford of Old Town in 1859, and was divided into lots of 160 acres each. The townhip is bounded by New Sweden on the north, by Caribou on the east, Wasburn on the south, and Perham on the west. At the time when the first clearing was made in Woodland, both Perham and New Sweden were wilderness townships and had not been lotted for settlement. The low price at which the state offered these new lands to actual settlers attracted the attention of the men who wished to make homes for themselves and families, and they were not long in the market before the sturdy blows of the pioneer's axe were resounding through the forest and clearings were commenced in different portions of the town.

Woodland was incorporated as a town on March 5, 1880, the name being descriptive of a land abounding in wood. The naming of Woodland from No. 14 township was said to have been by Mrs. J.G. Thayer and her daughter, Percees, at a regular town meeting. The town was first surveyed on November 28, 1877, and at the time, found to include 34,102 square miles.
