Woodstock’s charming downtown is right out of central casting. The city’s historic turn-of-the-century town square, landmark Woodstock Opera House and Old McHenry County Courthouse have a certain star quality.

It’s no wonder Woodstock made its way onto the big screen. The city was the hometown featured in the movie Groundhog Day and also appeared in Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

At one time Woodstock was known as the “typewriter city”, home to two major typewriter factories. Woodstock workers built more than half the world’s typewriters by the early 1920s. The factory eventually closed in 1970 and later converted to lofts.

Woodstock is a popular destination for live music featuring local, national and international artists. The Woodstock City Band is one of the longest-standing traditions with concerts every summer dating back to 1885. The free Wednesday night concerts are held in the Square and are often accompanied by an ice cream social. Woodstock also hosts a folk festival in July and Jazz on the Square Festival in August.

Woodstock Community Unit School District 200 serves students with six elementary schools, two middle schools and two high schools, Woodstock High School and Woodstock North High School.

Commuters have direct access to downtown Chicago from the Woodstock Metra station along Metra’s Union Pacific Northwest Line.
