The town of Woodstock is located in the Upper Valley on Route 4. The shire town of Windsor County, Woodstock was chartered by New Hampshire Governor Wentworth in 1761. Woodstock owes its growth and prosperity over the past 200 years to the mills powered by the falls of the Ottauquechee River.
More important than its scenic surroundings or architecture, however, is Woodstock’s active community. The organization Sustainable Woodstock is dedicated to promoting environmental, economic, and socially responsible practices. Founded in 2009, Sustainable Woodstock has started community gardens, taught residents to make their homes more energy efficient, and connected them to their local farmers.
Woodstock is well-known for being a prosperous and picturesque Vermont town. However, the preservation of these qualities through the years is due entirely to the tireless efforts of its conscientious community.
