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.

About the author (2002)

Woodstock resident Janine Fallon-Mower has long been involved in researching local history. A member of the Historical Society of Woodstock, she also served on the Woodstock Bicentennial Celebration Committee. For the text of Woodstock, she has drawn material from diaries and conversations and stories that people have shared with her. For the illustrations, she has selected images-many of them previously unpublished-from the archives of the historical society, the historic house record of the town, and the albums and scrapbooks of many generous friends and neighbors-all of whom nourish a strong sense of a pride in their community.
