Woodbury Real Estate – Northstar MLS Minnesota Member
Until the late 1950s, Woodbury was a sleepy farming area. After WWII, development began, but really exploded in the 1970s-1990s and continues today. Woodbury’s close proximity to St. Paul and access to the rest of the metro has driven this rapid growth, which is supported by an extensive shopping center district along both sides of I-94. The city is now the primary population center of Washington County. It has been the area’s fastest growing city for three decades. That growth has been carefully planned, and the city has avoided most of the problems inherent with explosive growth.
