Welcome To Woodstock, CT - A Rural Community

About Woodstock

Woodstock, Connecticut is considered part of the "Quiet Corner." It is known for its "tranquility, history and pastoral good looks," according to the guidebook 1,000 Places to See Before You Die. Woodstock is located in the northeastern corner of Connecticut. Area-wise, it is actually the second largest town in CT. Our population is still small (8,037 residents as of 2011) but growing.

Our town is a rural, historic community with an agricultural background. Woodstock has more operating dairy farms than any other town in Connecticut. Support for open space conservation and the farming community is strong. The town also encourages light manufacturing and welcomes small businesses.

There are many types of farms, craft shops, antique shops, and restaurants intermingled with light industry such as the manufacture of electrical switches, jet aircraft components, microporous plastics, fancy soaps and toiletries, fiberglass components, fine furniture and kitchen cabinets. A third of residents have college degrees, and a number of professionals run small businesses or telecommute from their homes. The scenery is spectacular, and the residents are friendly.

In order to preserve the town's rural character and agricultural base, residents have adopted "The Right to Farm Ordinance" and created The Woodstock Land Preservation and Land Acquisition Fund."

Villages

Woodstock is made up of six distinct villages: South Woodstock, Woodstock Hill, North Woodstock, East Woodstock, West Woodstock, and Woodstock Valley. Bordering towns (clockwise, starting to the north) are Southbridge and Dudley, Massachusetts; and Thompson, Putnam, Pomfret, Eastford, and Union, Connecticut.
