The Woodland/George area was settled primarily by members of The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) who came from Tidewater Virginia and the Albemarle Sound region during the last half of the 1700’s. They participated in the founding of Rich Square Meeting in 1760.  The Quakers living in what is now Woodland started having worship at the old Outland Quaker School House under the care of their parent meeting in Rich Square. The Cedar Grove Meeting House is on land given for Friends’ education and worship by Cornelius Outland and his wife in 1868.
