Woodstock, Vermont is a must! The town's central square, called the Green, is bordered by restored late Georgian, Federal Style, and Greek Revival houses. The seasonal presence of wealthy second-home owners from cities such as Boston and New York has contributed to the town's economic vitality and livelihood. The town maintains a free community wi-fi internet service that covers most of the village of Woodstock, dubbed "Wireless Woodstock". Woodstock was named "The Prettiest Small Town in America" by the Ladies Home Journal magazine and in 2011, North and South Park Street and one block of Elm Street won an award for great streetscape by the American Planning Association's "Great Places in America" program.
Windsor was chartered as a town in 1761 and has played many important roles in the state and country's history. In 1777, the signers of the Constitution of the Vermont Republic met at Old Constitution House, a tavern at the time, to declare independence from the British Empire. The Vermont Republic would not become a state until 1791. In 1820, it was the state's largest town, a thriving center for trade and agriculture.
The tools and the methods which make mass production possible were pioneered at the Robbins & Lawrence Armory in Windsor, Vermont. Using precision metal and wood cutting machines and high standards of accuracy, Robbins & Lawrence proved the effectiveness of a new type of manufacturing that would soon be known as the American System.
