An intriguing part of Catskill Mountain history comes wrapped up in this updated Woodstock farmhouse situated right in the middle of town.

However, this c.1901 eyebrow Colonial didn’t always take up such prime real estate in the village of Woodstock, NY. Once upon a time, it sat in the original town of Ashokan in Ulster County. When the town was flooded to create the Ashokan Reservoir in 1912, the owners did what any good preservationist would do: They moved the entire house a few miles down the road. Kudos to their determination to keep this little house in-tact.
