History of the Woodbury Olde-City Restoration Committee
In 1977, Woodbury attorney, John Holston, Jr., organized a group of spirited Woodbury citizens with the goals of preserving and promoting historic Woodbury, New Jersey. Settled over 300 hundred years ago by an English Quaker family named Wood, the city of Woodbury is endowed with a lengthy and colorful history. Woodbury Olde-City Restoration Committee, often known locally as “WORC”, set its sights on preserving the historic character and the historic structures of the city.
