Brief History[edit | edit source]

The Town of Woodstock was first known as Plantation Three. In the spring of 1797, a surveyor for Buckfield, Maine, laid out ten lots of one hundred areas each, five on each side of the new road (now known as Old County Road). A petition was sent to the General Court of Boston, Massachusetts to become incorporated as a town in May of 1814. It requested that Plantation Number Three may be incorporated into a town by the name of Sparta. The petition was signed by the Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on February 7, 1815, and read “an act to establish the Town of Woodstock”. After the Atlantic and St. Lawrence passenger train came through on March 10, 1851, many moved their homes to the future village.
