Dean's Store--The Woodstock Visitor's Center

There's a place you can go in my town's historic district to find out about all its going's on, both the official tidbits and those that are "off the record." In what was once the bus station and the first place you could buy Coke in Woodstock, Dean's Store is perfectly preserved and stuck in time to reflect its beginnings.

There are plenty of local brochures and magazines to help you navigate your time and way, but the best information can be found behind the counter while either Kyle Bennett or Juanita Hughes is on duty. They won't steer you wrong.

Dean's Store handed out American flags to a teary-eyed crowd along the funeral route of a fallen Woodstock soldier.

A group called "the boys" has been meeting at Dean's Store in the morning for years.

Old relics from a different time. This phone always reminds me of the phone scene in It's a Wonderful Life.

Enamored of.

Kyle always has cold bottles of Coke for visitors after a downtown Woodstock tour.
