This is much more than just a visitors center. In fact, one could argue that within the walls of the century-old Dean’s Store exists a visitors center, a museum, a library, an art gallery, a concert hall, a literary lounge, a gathering place, a time capsule. All of these descriptions are correct. Perhaps the greatest way to describe this historic place is the “Heart of the City.”
A must for travelers, a gem for genealogical enthusiasts, a toolbox for the history buff, and conversation pit for residents, one can find the mix of yesterday and today in this local landmark. Thanks to the generosity of the Dean Family, the Woodstock Convention & Visitors Bureau has been provided the opportunity to open up this treasure for the citizens of Woodstock and those just passing through.
We hope that you enjoy your visit and that you find traces of days gone by. More importantly, we hope you will go back to your home and pull out your old photos or visit that “Dean’s Store” of your community. We can only preserve what we will acknowledge.
