Ontario:
Woodstock

Woodstock is a city in southwestern Ontario, about 130 km west from Toronto and 40 km east from London.

It was incorporated as a town in 1851 and as a city in 1901. It is known as dairy capital of Canada. Woodstock is one of the few cities in Ontario to still have all of its original administration buildings.

We visited Woodstock in March 2005.
