Arts & Culture
Over a period of 37 years, Harvey Fite created the monumental world-acclaimed 6½-acre bluestone sculpture now known as Opus 40. Constructed by one man, using dry-key stone techniques adapted from the Mayans, Opus 40 is made from millions of pieces of indigenous bluestone, laid by hand, creating a labyrinthine world of finely fitted stone, swirling with ramps and terraces constructed around pools and trees and fountains, rising out of bedrock a half mile deep. Takes about 1-2 hours to walk the grounds.

As an iconic site of American Theatre & Music History, the establishment of the Woodstock Playhouse by Robert Elwyn was a monumental moment in the region’s history. The site is a crown jewel of American Theatre History established in 1938 as one of the first rural extensions of Broadway with connections to Al Hirschfeld, the debut of many famous actors of pop-history, grand legends of theatre & film, Margaret Webster’s American Repertory Theatre, and musicians who became idols and voices of our generations. As home to a pivotal 1968 concert, the generally accepted precursor to Woodstock 1969, the site holds a vibrant energy as a mecca for those who embrace history, theater, and music.
