The Collection

Our collection contains records of all aspects of living and working in Woodstock and the surrounding towns of north Windsor County, since earliest settlement, as a means of providing both a broad context and a regional home for valuable records.  We also keep research resources on the natural and built environment, land records, local governance & planning, commerce, industry, recreation, tourism, and contributions of individuals to our common culture through the arts, literature, and science. Our collection includes books, photographs, DVDs, CDs, maps, artwork on paper, blueprints, personal papers, official documents, manuscripts, diaries, account records and ledger books, posters, periodicals, family records, bibles, genealogies, albums, scrapbooks, memoirs, oral histories, ephemera, selected newspapers back to 1800, and other records of local interest and historical importance.
