Peace, Love, Music—45 Years Later

Uncategorized / Woodstock

Here in Woodstock, IL, memories of the Woodstock (NY) Festival linger. This weekend we celebrate the 45th anniversary of that musical happening in “the other Woodstock.”

A short walk from our community, we have a memorial, of sorts. Just south on Ware Road, there is a neighborhood named Sweetwater. Sweetwater was the first band to perform (after Richie Havens) at the Woodstock Music Festival. Do you think the developer was remembering Woodstock when he named the streets?

 A big thank you to my neighbor, Joe, for sharing the idea and photos for this post.
