Organized as a town in 1787, Woodstock has since been defined by a triangle of three distinct and powerful influences, weaving an uneasy balance: the legacies of the arts and crafts colony established at Byrdcliffe, the 1969 Woodstock Music Festival held in Bethel, and the people who live and work and raise families in the community. Woodstock provides a fascinating look at the community from the 1890s through the 1980s. With more than two hundred stunning images, it revisits the days when the center was simply a sleepy grass-covered village square. Shown are many buildings that no longer exist: the boarding homes, the icehouses, the bowling alley. The story captures the community as it passes through the arts-colony and music-festival years to become the busy tourist town it is today.
