The travel guidebook 1,000 Places to See Before Your Die describes Woodstock, located in Connecticut’s Quiet Corner, as tranquil and historic with pastoral good looks. Visitors to Connecticut Route 169 may be surprised that Woodstock is the second largest small town in the state with more operating dairy farms than any other town in Connecticut. Serious about maintaining their serene rural environment and spectacular scenery, residents adopted “The Right to Farm” ordinance and created the Woodstock Land Preservation and Land Acquisition Fund. In an area that has become an escape from the city, more than a third of residents have college degrees and a collection run small businesses or telecommute from their homes. The multitude of historic sites right in Woodstock include Roseland Cottage, Bowen House Museum, Israel Putnam Farm, Woodstock Academy, Inn at Woodstock Hill, First Congregational Church.
