Upcoming Events

With programs for adults, children, and families happening year-round, there is something for everyone who is eager to learn about the evolution of Woodstock and the surrounding area. 


For well over a decade the Woodstock History Center has been an engaged and creative participant in the educational lives of my Woodstock Elementary School students. The staff has a proven track record of easy collaboration, flexibility and enthusiasm. We have utilized their educational kits in classrooms, brought students to the museum exhibits, invited their outreach staff to our school, and researched in the library with fourth graders. We’re extremely fortunate to have such an amazing resource just a short walk away!
