Woodstock was chartered in 1761, and within five years it had been designated the shire town (county seat) of Windsor County—one reason it's so beautiful today.



Woodstock, 140 miles (225 km) northwest of Boston and 14 miles (23 km) west of White River Junction, is particularly well situated, in a beautiful valley of the Ottauquechee River with forested mountains all around and a historic Green at its center.

As the shire town (county seat) of Windham County, Woodstock, on a river that could power 19th-century small industry, Woodstock prospered.

With the arrival of the railroad and tourism later in the 1800s, Woodstock found its future. Soon wealthy vacationers were coming here. They still do, and they have made enlightened efforts to preserve the town's history and beauty for all visitors.
