WOODLAND, TEXAS (Hopkins County). Woodland was a farming community in southeastern Hopkins County eleven miles southeast of Sulphur Springs and three miles east of Como. Settled in the early 1850s, Woodland was the site of one of the county's first cemeteries. A post office operated from 1855 until 1866; John I. Bird was the first postmaster. In the early 1930s Woodland had a church, a cemetery, and a few scattered houses. The church was later closed, and in the early 1980s only the cemetery remained. No population estimates were available.
