History & History Related Items

Woodbury is one of the oldest towns in the county. It grew up about ten miles southeast of Greenville in the late 1820's. It was first named Sandtown for the white sand that covered the ground. When the post office opened in 1845, the PO department changed the name to Woodberry. By 1854, the spelling was officially changed to Woodbury. The town didn't grow much until the railroad came through around 1887. Around the turn of the century Woodbury had tremendous growth, with schools, churches and businesses serving the many new residents.
