I am too young to have been a part of Woodstock, but for the 400,000 or so who did attend the 1969 music festival, Max Yasgur's farm in upstate New York is a special place. Roy Howard currently owns the property and after years of wrangling with local officials over reunion permits, he's ready to sell. The asking price is $8 million, but who can put a price on owning such an iconic piece of American history?
The alfalfa field where the actual concert took place is not for sale, but Yasgur's 2,000 square foot house is, along with a larger farmhouse and barn as well as 103 acres of land. The house, located 80 miles north of New York City, comes with a gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances, double convection ovens, Viking stove, antique soapstone sink, 22-foot vaulted ceiling and beautiful views of the Pocono Mountains. Also included is a double whirlpool tub, steam shower and a bidet.
