The first settlers called their new home Woodstock, and it did not become an official city until 1897. Postal service records show that a postmaster was in Woodstock beginning in 1833, churches appeared, as early as the 1830s, as migrations of pioneers came to the community to farm the land. Early settlements sprang up around waterways, and as the railroad and train depot became a reality in 1879, the town centered on these landmarks.
The Woodstock Depot was built in 1912 by the Louisville & Nashville Railroad as the town grew. The line transported cotton, rope, and other agricultural products, as well as passengers. Passenger service ended in 1949.
