Woodstock, located in Cherokee County, Georgia, has a population of around 33,039 residents and extends over a 12.67 square mile radius. The city received the title of the 10th fastest growing suburb in 2007, according to Forbes.com
Woodstock was incorporated as a town in 1897. Even before its incorporation, Woodstock was already considered a vital figure in agricultural and industrial settlement from its very early stages of development. As a result, the town has been no stranger to growing its size and population.
After being incorporated, Woodstock became a trading center specializing in cotton and rope. However, it also has many agricultural products to offer as well. It was also the first city in Cherokee county to install streetlights.
Presently, Woodstock enjoys its role as a small residential city. While its agricultural and industrial side isn’t as strong as it used to be, the area has an expanding business district and many modern amenities, which tremendously increase residents’ quality of life.
In 2006, the city created the Woodstock Area Convention and Visitors Bureau to promote tourism and other activities and events occurring in the area. From outdoor activities like kayaking and fishing at Lake Allatoona to taking a walk in the Park at City Center to exploring all the Woodstock Arts: Event Green has to offer, there is no shortage of sites to see and activities to enjoy. The town center has gone through a massive revival and now enjoys many new businesses such as restaurants, cafes, stores, and other venues.
