History

Woodside, Utah is located "at the crossing of the Price River and US-6, 50. It was settled by whites in 1881 and soon became a thriving farming community and a busy livestock loading station. The Price River occasionally flooded, the open range disappeared, and railroad facilities improved to the point where nearby Helper became a more important town. After the cafe and store burned down in 1970, Woodside became a ghost town." [1]
