Welcome to Putnam Memorial State Park,
the oldest state park in Connecticut. Located on the site
of the Winter Encampment of General Israel Putnam's Continental
troops from December 1778 - May 1779, the park is dedicated
to the role they played in the Revolutionary War in helping
secure America's independence.
Putnam Memorial State Park
is located at the Intersection of Rte 58 and Rte 107 in Redding,
Connecticut. If you wish to view photos of the Park or share
your own photos, we
are now on Flickr.
