Isaac and Betty Cannon began operating a ferry here on Nanticoke River, Feb. 2, 1793. Their sons continued it, built stores and warehouses in the hamlet named for them.

The ferry became property of Sussex County following the brothers' death in 1843. First postoffice named "Woodland" was established in 1882 and the hamlet took the same name. The State acquired the county roads and ferry in 1935.
