Woodbury is located in the state of Minnesota and a city in Washington County. The city was considered to be the direct descendant to one of the congressional townships of the Minnesota territory, which were divided during cessation by the Native American inhabitants and "opened settlement." The area was originally called Red Rock but was then renamed by Levi Woodbury to Woodbury, who was the United States Supreme Court Chief Justice when he realized that there was another city named Red Rock that is also located in Minnesota. The area was mostly converted to farmland when it was first settled in 1844. In 1955, the city's first suburban development began, and the increase in the level of the urban expansion paved the way to progress and shopping malls that converted the farmlands.
