“True to its past….Confident of its future”
In 1852 when founders first discovered Woodstock it was a town of grassy prairies and ancient trees. The town had slow growth in the beginning, but once the train line was developed in Woodstock, the town really started to see industrial growth. In the early 1900's the town became known as the "Typewriter City" due to the fact that Woodstock built more than half of the world's typewriters during this time. Today, you still get that true mid-westerner feel when you are in Woodstock. The town has so much to offer, not only does the town offer business opportunities, the historic downtown area and entertainment for its residents, but residents can also enjoy the countryside and the Victorian charm that Woodstock offers. Woodstock's public school system was formed in 1969, which includes six elementary schools, two middle schools and two high schools.
