This tree, located until the mid-1960s on West North Street (then Fairview Road), was one of at least four oaks planted to mark the boundaries of the Town of Woodstock. The tree caught fire, either the handiwork of pranksters or an ill-placed cigarette butt, and was damaged to the extent that it had to be cut. Many residents of town collected slices of the old tree for use as coffee table tops. The tree was located on the south wide of North Street a few hundred yards east of Interstate 81 which had not yet been opened to traffic. It was on a farm owned at that time by the family of the late E. E. Golladay, a prominent cattle dealer. Sandra Wolverton and John Charles Wolverton were photographed beneath the tree in 1953.
