Welcome to the charming and historic town of Woodstock, Virginia! This adorable little town, with a population of about 3,500 is nestled in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, between the Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains. The town was established by charter in 1761 by none other than George Washington in Virginia’s House of Burgesses and has been the county seat since Shenandoah County was formed in 1772. The limestone courthouse in the center of town was built in 1795 and is the oldest working courthouse west of the Blue Ridge Mountains and one of many stops along the Wilderness Road. It was designed by Thomas Jefferson, and during the Civil War, soldiers from both sides came through the courthouse.
Woodstock is the perfect destination for people who love spectacular mountain views, antique and unique collectible shops, wine tasting and vineyard tours, first class golf courses, caverns, Civil War battlefields and museums, horse back riding, skiing, hiking, fine dining and the arts!

Residents of Woodstock love the casual and relaxed way of life that exists within the town and throughout the Shenandoah Valley. They also appreciate the town’s proximity to the nation’s capital and it’s short distance from two cities—Winchester to the north and Harrisonburg to the south.
