Historical Facts:

On May 15, 1888, Whitewood became an incorporated town. In the beginning, Whitewood was made up of a few buildings. A few of those buildings were a Methodist church, Lutheran church,  & Grimsbo Hall which was purchased by Albert Grimsbo. In Whitewood's early years of incorporation it was known as the "breadbasket" because of its abundance of fruit and vegetable gardens made by Whitewood residents.
