Downtown Woodstock GA

 Brick paved sidewalks provide residents and visitors with a pedestrian friendly environment, where buildings dating back to 1879 are the trademark of this historical commercial district, the heart of Woodstock. The Downtown District includes antique shops, tearooms and special events facilities.  Specialty shops including hair salon, gift shop, coffee house and furniture store complement the area.  Services available include chiropractic care, spas, car repairs and more.  A walk through Downtown Woodstock brings back the beauty of days gone by with the convenience of today and the allure of the future.  A visit to the Woodstock Visitors Center at Dean's Store will give credence to the slogan there:  Where yesterday lives and tomorrow waits.  Opened in an existing building in 1906, the store has remained in the Dean Family since that time.  Since 1981, little merchandise has been sold, but easy chairs and surroundings from other centuries invite visitors to come in for information and directions.

 Woodstock GA Train Depot located on main Street at West Mill Street, in Woodstock, GA. The Depot was built in 1912 by the Louisville & Nashville Railroad as a replacement depot for a small town, and it served the many needs of the citizens for both shipping and receiving freight--including agricultural products, as well as the arrival and departure of passengers for travel, work, attending schools, departing for military service, etc. Passenger service ended in 1949. The depot is now a restaurant.

We even have our own Bay Window Caboose located next to the old Woodstock Train Depot!
