What To Know About Woodstock, Vermont

Widely recognized as "one of the prettiest small towns in America," Woodstock, Vermont was chartered in 1761, more than 15 years before the United States of America signed the Declaration of Independence.

As the Shire Town of Windsor County, Woodstock became a hub for all things related to Vermont business and the law with the county court seated on the Village Green and early entrepreneurs flocking to the opportunity that the land provided. Some of the earliest manufacturers, craftsmen, and artisans, started their trades in Woodstock and the small village quickly became one of the largest towns in the state.

Historic and architecturally important buildings surrounding the central square, known as The Green, include the 1880s pink sandstone Norman Williams Public Library. Just north, Billings Farm & Museum is a functioning dairy farm, with an 1890 farmhouse and exhibits re-creating 19th-century farm life. Hiking and snowshoeing trails lace the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park. World-class recreational amenities in the area include skiing, hiking, fishing, and golf.

Today, Woodstock continues to honor its history and sense of place through a strong connection to conservation and the farm-to-table movement. Local artisans of all kinds add to a culture that celebrates a combination of historic American charm, outdoor recreation, boutique shopping, fine dining, and a thriving year-round community. Woodstock area real estate includes charming homes on compact lots in the village, and farms and larger parcels outside of town.
