Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced on Tuesday that Bethel Woods Center for the Arts in the Hudson Valley town of Bethel has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Cuomo says the festival that drew nearly half a million people to Max Yasgur's farm was a "pivotal moment in both New York and American history," and the recognition will preserve the landmark for future generations.

The 800-acre Bethel Woods campus is 90 miles north of New York City.
