This cemetery, probably named for noted pioneer educator D.R. Wood, was established with the 1858 burial of Sarah E. Shipman, wife of prominent local rancher John K. Shipman. More than 20 additional burials were recorded before John Shipman deeded 11.5 acres here for cemetery, church, and school purposes in 1877. The cemetery contains grave sites of many area pioneer settlers and their descendants and veterans of the Civil War and World Wars I and II. Wood Cemetery remains active and is maintained by an association of descendants of persons buried here.
