Only 30 miles north of downtown Atlanta, situated along I-575, sits a community known as one of the Top 50 Best Places to Live in the United States.
Woodstock got its start in the early 1830s as a small farming community. After being established as a railroad stop in the 1870s, the town became officially incorporated in 1897. Despite its origins as a small, sleepy rail town, Woodstock has experienced a true renaissance to become one of Georgia’s fastest-growing communities, with current population nearly 30 times what it was in 1970. Woodstock continues to thrive as a residential suburb even while many of its historic buildings and downtown areas have been preserved and restored.
