Woodard, a rural community eighteen miles southeast of Paris off Farm Road 1503 in southeastern Lamar County, was first settled before 1900. A school was in operation by 1906, when it had an enrollment of twenty-four. During the mid-1930s the community had a school and a number of houses; several stores were also located in the area. After World War II most of the residents moved away, and in the early 1990s only a cemetery and few scattered dwellings remained. No population estimates were available.
