Breaking News

BETHEL, N.Y., Aug. 9 — Inside an old wood-beamed farmhouse with picture windows on a hillside here, the chirp of the telephone pierced the air roughly every five minutes Thursday morning with another inquiry about the sale of “Yasgur’s Farm,” a house and a piece of land that the 1969 Woodstock music festival made famous, at least among members of the scattered tribe of a certain time.

“That’s right, that’s right, we’re moving, permanently, to Phoenix,” said Roy Howard, 73, speaking into the phone and pacing back and forth along the length of a kitchen counter that was covered with papers, bills and unopened solicitations from AARP.
