Settlement in the Woodlawn area began as early as 1754 when the road between the Dartmouth ferry and the community of Lawrencetown was under construction. Some of the first settlers were United Empire Loyalists who moved to Nova Scotia after the American Revolution. The area initially got its name from the Woodlawn Cemetery, established by Ebenezer Allen in the late 1700s for local residents. Among those buried in the graveyard are Jane and Margaret Meagher, otherwise known as the "Babes in the Woods", who disappeared from their home in 1842. After an exhaustive search of the surrounding woods, they were found dead several days later and were subsequently interred in the cemetery. Woodlawn Methodist Church was built in the area in 1884. It became Woodlawn United Church in 1925, following church union.
Until the 1950s, Woodlawn had mainly been a rural farming community before the general subdivision boom of the late 1940s and 1950s reshaped the areas surrounding Dartmouth.
