This residence was built in 1822 by General Green Clay for his daughter, the wife of Colonel William Rodes.  John Fox, Jr., wrote a description of this house in his novel Crittenden. Woodlawn was occupied by both Union and Confederate forces during the War Between the States. The house was dismantled in 2005 and removed from the county.
