Mathew Bowen Homestead (Inn at Woodstock Hill)
Now a hotel called the Inn at Woodstock Hill, the Mathew Bowen Homestead is a historic home built in 1816. It is a fine example of Federal Revival architecture and has accompanying structures that, together, comprise a well-preserved farm complex. The house was built for William Bowen, a prominent local figure who founded Woodstock Academy, operated a tavern, and served as the town's first postmaster. He could trace his lineage to Henry Bowen, who arrived in Woodstock in 1686. The Inn has been in operation since mid-to-late 1980s and also features a restaurant.
