Stopped by on our way thru the Catskills.It was nice to see where it actually took place.The museum and gift shops were new and very nice though it did feel a little odd considering the "feelings" at Woodstock during1969.

Spent a beautiful August Sunday afternoon here. This place is gorgeous. Magnificent architecture. Immaculate grounds. Beautifully bricked walkways. Judging by your surroundings you'd never guess what happened here 48 years ago. And of course there are plenty of throwback-like souvenirs available.
