Woodland has a rich and colorful history. The first settler was likely Adolphous Le Lewes, who made a homestead at the mouth of what came to be called the Lewis River (named after him, in an alternate spelling). Another pioneer was Squire Bozarth, who built the first frame house in the 1850s that he called Woodland Farm House. His son Columbus later opened a store which he named "Woodland" after his father's farm. The town of Woodland grew from that spot where the Woodland store was located.
Parks and Recreation
Woodland has about 40 acres of parks, and the area is noted for its lush green parklands. It's a green community that's committed to preserving nature and a future of growth. Horseshoe Lake Park is the biggest of the local parks, with a picnic ground and areas for swimming and fishing.

Attractions and Events
If you love flowers, head over to the Hulda Klager Lilac Gardens and enjoy all of the different lilacs, as well as browse the Klager Museum. The Cedar
Creek Grist Mill is a unique Northwest landmark. Not only is the setting amazingly picturesque and historic, but the
attraction is extremely serene and peaceful. Treat yourself to a regional delicacy, their trademark apple cider. The Mill is especially busy during the apple pressing season.
