The town boasts some of the finest 19th Century Victorian heritage homes, churches and civic buildings. The town is a vibrant, prosperous community and the service centre of the Upper St. John River Valley. Woodstock is the retail and commercial hub of the agricultural, forestry and transportation sectors in the regional economy.
