Town of Putnam

This quaint New England town is nestled on the banks of the Quinebaug River in the northeast corner of the state. Putnam is renowned for its antique market, boasting several shops with unique items. Recently, the town has been re-inventing itself with an “Arts & Al Fresco” motif featuring small boutiques, theaters and art galleries. Aside from the arts and culture, Putnam offers several outdoor recreation options, like the Putnam River Trail. The trail runs two miles through woodlands, parks, antique shopping district and near the mills. The pet-friendly river trail offers running, hiking, walking, biking and roller skating.
