History

Woodbridge was founded in 1852 by Jeremiah H. Woods and Alexander McQueen, who built a ford across the Mokelumne River. They later built a bridge in 1858. Woods hoped that the settlement would grow larger than Stockton, and even hoped to form a separate county, Mokelumne County, with Woodbridge as the seat. In 1867, however, the railroad chose to bypass Woodbridge and lay tracks through neighboring Lodi instead. [ [http://woodbridge95258.com/history01.htm "Woodbridge: Orphan of the Railroads"] . From Raymond W. Willman and Leonard Covello, "Cities & Towns of San Joaquin County Since 1847", 1985.]

Woodbridge then became an educational center, with the Woodbridge Seminary and San Joaquin Valley College both opening doors in 1879. The college closed in 1897 due to declining enrollment.
