This banner embraces the efforts that were put forth prior to the evolution of historic preservation. The Woodstock Preservation Alliance is the banner which the Preservationists stood under throughout their efforts for the historic preservation of the Woodstock Site. The "Dove Behind the Fence" was a signature logo used by the Woodstock Preservationists to raise awareness and the chain-link fence is symbolic of the fact that the privilege to walk freely on the Woodstock Site, is no longer allowed.

THE NATIONAL REGISTER FOR HISTORIC PLACES

A listing in the National Register for Historic Places honors the property by recognizing its importance to its community, State, or the Nation.

THE ORIGINAL WOODSTOCK SITE, MEETING SPECIAL CRITERIA, WAS FOUND TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR LISTING ON THE NATIONAL REGISTER -

17 YEARS AHEAD OF ITS TIME.

Letter to Alan Gerry / Request for Owner Support
(6 Feb 2003)


Statement of Owner Support
(6 Feb 2003)


Correspondence with the NY State Historic Preservation Office

Follow-Up Letter to the Gerry Foundation

**Note: Upon filing the nomination application, the property owner and local officials would be notified by SHPO of the intent to nominate, and public comment would be solicited. The owner of private property is given an opportunity to agree with, or object to, the nomination. If the owner of this property objects to the nomination, the historic property cannot be listed in the National Register.

NY SHPO's policy states that owners support is required prior to submitting an application. Pursuing the nomination, regardless of owners support, would possibly mandate a review and subsequent determination, however the absence of owner support would preclude the listing.

Our requests to Alan Gerry for his support were never realized.
