Historical Society of Woodstock presents "Woodstock's Farming Story"
The Historical Society of Woodstock announces the opening of a new exhibition, Woodstock’s Farming Story, on Saturday September 30 2023 at 20 Comeau Drive Woodstock, N.Y. with an opening reception on September 30 at 3 pm. The exhibition, through images and artifacts, looks at how farming has been part of Woodstock’s story from its earliest days to the present. The exhibition will run through November 12th and is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 1 pm to 5 pm. Admission is free. Like most of rural America during the 1800s, Woodstockers relied on farming to provide for the needs of their families and to serve as sources of income. Even “town families” maintained large gardens and chickens as well as a milk cow in their backyards. Will Rose, for example, writes in his book The Vanishing Village about the wonderful smell of the fruit trees and berries throughout the village. The artists who arrived in the early 1900s also learned the value of Woodstock’s barns as both a subject for their paintings as well as a place to live. The exhibit also looks at present day farmers as they bring their own twist to Woodstock’s farming story.
