An earlier Oklahoma community named Woodville was submerged in 1944 when the Red River was dammed (Denison Dam) to create Lake Texoma.[7] The drought of 2013 reduced the level of Lake Texoma sufficiently to expose some of Old Woodville's foundations and storm cellars.[8]

The original Woodville town incorporated between 1900 and 1907 and disincorporated when inundated in 1944. The community reincorporated as New Woodville town about two miles north of the original townsite also in 1944. New Woodville disincorporated for brief periods in the late 90s or the early 2000s, but has legally existed since 2002 although the town government has been inactive.[9]
