Historyedit

First granted in 1763, Colonial Governor Benning Wentworth named the town Peeling after an English town Many of the first colonists were originally from Lebanon, Connecticut In 1771, his nephew, Governor John Wentworth, gave it the name Fairfield, after Fairfield, Connecticut The town was renamed Woodstock in 1840 for Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, England2

Logging became a principal early industry, with sawmills established using water power from the Pemigewasset River The entrance of the railroad in the 19th century opened the wilderness to development, carrying away wood products to market It also brought tourists, many attracted by paintings of the White Mountains by White Mountain artists Several inns and hotels were built to accommodate the wealthy, who sought relief from the summer heat, humidity and pollution of coal-age Boston, Hartford, New York and Philadelphia They often relaxed by taking carriage rides through the White Mountains, or by hiking along the Lost River in Lost River Reservation But with the advent of automobiles, patrons were no longer restricted by the limits of rail service Consequently, many grand hotels established near depots declined and closed Woodstock, however, remains a popular tourist destination
