Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is situated on the site of one of the most significant cultural events of the 1960s—the Woodstock Music and Art Fair . We take our responsibility as stewards of this historic place very seriously, and in 2014 we commissioned a report to document the site and to recommend steps that we could take to better preserve and interpret the site for our guests.

Landscape historians and architects Heritage Landscapes produced an enlightening and detailed Cultural Landscape Report, which was accepted by the Bethel Woods Board of Trustees at their summer 2015 meeting. This CLR describes the natural and human-made features of the landscape in 1969 and the present. The landscape today remains remarkably similar to its historic condition, and the report makes 21 concrete recommendations for how the site can be better preserved, better interpreted, and made more authentic.

This aerial photograph shows Bethel Woods Center for the Arts as it appeared in 2012. The solid orange outline shows the boundaries of the property that Max Yasgur leased to Woodstock Ventures for the festival, while the  dashed red, blue, and green outlines represent the significant Landscape Character Areas (LCAs) identified in the Cultural Landscape Report.

Cultural landscapes can range from thousands of acres of rural tracts of land to a small homestead with a front yard of less than one acre . Like historic buildings and districts, these special places reveal aspects of our country's origins and development through their form and features and the ways they were used. Cultural landscapes also reveal much about our evolving relationship withthe natural world.

Patterns on the land have been preserved through the continuation of traditional uses, such as the grape fields at the Sterling Vineyards in Calistoga, California. Photo: NPS files.

There are four general types of cultural landscapes, not mutually exclusive: historic sites, historic designed landscapes, historic vernacular landscapes, and ethnographic landscapes. These are defined below.
