Colonel John Black built Woodlawn, a 180-acre estate, between 1824-1827. George Nixon Black, Jr. was the last of three generations of the family to occupy Woodlawn. He willed the estate to the Hancock County Trustees of Public Reservations in 1928. They have maintained it for public use since 1929.
