The Daily Freeman reports that the Sullivan County farm that hosted the Woodstock concert in 1969 has been added to the State and National Registers of Historic Places, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced June 6. Nothing much else besides cows grazing happened at Max Yasgur’s dairy farm except for 400,000 people showing up for a few days in 1969 to see Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and The Who. The Bethel Woods Center for the Arts performance venue and The Museum at Bethel Woods opened years after the concert, because of interest in the event. Read the full story in The Daily Freeman.
