Woodbridge was founded in 1852 by Jeremiah H. Woods and Alexander McQueen, who built a ford across the Mokelumne River. They later built a bridge in 1858. Woods hoped that the settlement would grow larger than Stockton, and even hoped to form a separate county, Mokelumne County, with Woodbridge as the seat. In 1867, however, the railroad chose to bypass Woodbridge and lay tracks through neighboring Lodi instead.
