The Shire Town of Windsor County

Town Hosted By: Denise Perkins Ready


Welcome to Woodstock, Incorporated 1761

As the Chamber of Commerce states it, "Famous world-wide as the quintessential New England Village,"   While the town has been described as "The Prettiest Small Town in America" this is an ongoing task to sustain for village administrators.   But despite the hustle and bustle of people and traffic, you'll find quaint shops, and galleries among the side streets and alleys.
