History of Woodland

Samuel Gale, an origonal owner of the land, built a summer cottage in 1869 and expanded Dock - Lake Minnetonkathe structure to house vacationers in what became the Maplewood Inn. Guests found the informal nature of the wooded lakeshore inn the ideal place for relaxation and leisure. The inn, surrounded by the unbroken lakeshore, continued to serve travelers until 1904. Eventually, modern advances would allow leading Minneapolis families ways to live and enjoy the lakeshore lifestyle year round.

Among the first settlers was a Methodist group, organized as Groveland Homeowners Association, who purchased 14 acres or real estate that became known as Groveland. The remaining area was known as Maplewood, due to its dense Maplewood tree population. In order to preserve the unique and quiet character of the land, the two combined in 1948 to form what is known today as Woodland. The name was derived by taking the wood from Maplewood and the land from Groveland.
