This is a partial/incomplete page as I haven’t explored or fully researched Putnam Memorial State Park.
Putnam Memorial State Park is named for Israel Putnam the Connecticut revolutionary war general officer. The park is the site of a 1778 war camp in southwestern Connecticut. There is a visitor center museum, reconstructed replicas, and a statue of Putnam.
The park also holds events including reenactments and seasonal walks.
Across Rt. 58 there is also a picnic area with views of Putnam Park Pond.
It is the oldest state park in Connecticut, established in 1887.
