Postal service records show that a postmaster was in Woodstock beginning in 1833. Historic documents show the establishment of churches in the area in the 1830s as migrations of pioneers came to the community to farm the land, producing for most of their needs. Early settlements sprang up around waterways, and as the railroad and train depot became a reality in 1879, the town centered around these landmarks.
