Create a hands-on history lesson with a visit to Putnam Memorial State Park, site of the Continental Army's 1779 winter encampment in Bethel, Connecticut.

Great open space easy walking trails, plenty of foot traffic. Great 719-337-3964hike during the fall foliage season.

Great place to take my young kids for a walk. The lessons they learned about the parks history as a late 1700's military encampment along the way made it perfect for some fresh air, exercise and education.

One of my first ventures into the outdoors, history, and hiking. There is a Youth Group camping area.
There are reenactments throughout the year. There is a museum with great info. There is a picnic area on a lake across the street from the historic area.
