Original post made on Apr 17, 2013

In Woodside, there is a list of 22 structures of historic significance to the town. Included are the Albert Shine house, a Victorian built near Canada Road in 1882 using mail-order plans. Independence Hall is listed and dates from 1884. There are residents who would like to see that list expanded, and many who would not — at least not with their homes.

Too Late. The charming little log cabin, the Scout Hall, the open Spaces, associated with each house to ensure a setting, all pretty much lost to a new age with new values. All the good stuff from Old Woodside, with the exception of the Tripp Store, which the County runs, is gone. Welcome to Woodside in the new millennium.
