Woodford is a town located in Bennington County, of the "Manchester-Bennington" region of Vermont.

Woodford was originally granted in 1753, but the French and Indian Wars prevented settlement within the required five years, and so was re-granted in 1762. It was supposedly named for a General Woodford, a British officer who served during the French and Indian Wars, but the name is more likely after Woodford, Essex, England.

A notable person from the area is Franklin W. Olin, founder of Olin Industries, and benefactor of the Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering.
