Woodford is an unincorporated community of Caroline County, Virginia. Once known as Downer's Crossing, the area was where people would go to board the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad that'll take them across the Mattaponi River. By 1837, Downer's Crossing was officially named Woodford's Lane after the American Revolutionary War general William Woodford. It consisted of a post office, general store and train. In the early 1900s, Woodford's Lane grew from 30 residents to over 100 residents. This is due in part because of the mill that was developed to produce excelsior – a product used to pack furniture and fragile items for shipment, stuff car cushions and reinforce gypsum wallboards.
Today, Woodford is located within proximity to the neighborhoods of Bowling Greens, Paige, Villboro, Guinea and Loving Fork. The main roads serving the community are Woodford Road (Virginia Route 609 and 626), Woodslane Road, Lake Farm Road, Rozell Road, and the Fredericksburg Turnpike (Virginia Route 2).
