The Woodstock History Center endeavors to tell the story of Woodstock. We rotate many of our exhibits every year and utilize items from our collection to enhance the visitor experience. We also have many objects on loan from various community members. We showcase the story and objects of those people who lived in Woodstock in our historic home, gallery, and barn.
Coming Soon in 2018
Character: Woodstock's Unforgettable People
In 2018, the Woodstock History Center will host an exhibit that features some of the unforgettable people who have made Woodstock such a special place throughout its history. In this exhibit, we would like to represent people who are remembered for a variety of reasons – ranging from talents and accomplishments to larger-than-life personalities and marching to the beat of one’s own drummer.
The following are the basic criteria for inclusion in the exhibit:
Person is no longer living
Person must have a strong Woodstock connection
There must be photos or other materials about the person that can be used for the exhibit
If you would like to nominate a person to be included in the exhibit, please fill out the nomination form below and send it by February 23.
We will not be able to include every nominee on a museum interpretive panel. However, there will be other ways we will highlight these individuals, such as a companion booklet, so that we can include as many people as possible. While this exhibit will be launched in June 2018, we plan to run the exhibit over a period of several years with new unforgettable people being featured each year.
