Woodstock is a picturesque rural New England town dating back to 1686.
Located in the northeastern area of Connecticut and on the Massachusetts border, the tranquil hilltop village has distant views to the north and overlooks rolling apple orchards and farms bordered by stone walls. The town boasts its very own pink mansion - Roseland Cottage - a fabulous example of a gothic revival summer house. The cottage is a National Historic Landmark, and is open to the public for guided tours. At the village crossroads are many quaint antique shops, charming boutiques, a café, and a real English tea shop serving delicious light lunches. Woodstock takes pleasure in its effort to maintain the community's rural character. It has many beautiful nature walks, parks and two golf courses. A proud farming history has supported a popular annual agricultural fair held each year since 1860 at the fairgrounds. Every Labor Day weekend, one of the town's greatest attractions to Woodstock is the Annual Fair. It offers fun for every age and is also the second oldest fair in New England. Woodstock is also home to Taylor Brooke Winery and Woodstock Academy, a co-educational college preparatory high school that was founded in 1801. There is a lot to offer here in the Quiet Corner of Connecticut!
