In the north-western portion of Monroe county, 18 miles from Paris, in Woodlawn township, is situated the village of Woodlawn. This village is surrounded by as good a farming country as can be found in any other portion of the county, and taking population into consideration, has more energetic farmers than any other township in the county. Several farmers in the immediate vicinity of Woodlawn are extensive stock dealers, and should this township ever have railroad facilities, it would, in a short time, be the banner township of the county. The village of Woodlawn has two stores, one dry goods and grocery, the other drug and grocery.
