Friends of Putnam Park

The Friends & Neighbors (FANS) of Putnam Park is a not for profit group whose mission is to help maintain and promote the historical, educational and recreational values of Putnam Memorial State Park. The FANS group is comprised of people, like you, who have an appreciation for “this historical jewel in our midst.” Our purpose is to help insure that Putnam Park is preserved for future generations as well as to promote its unique heritage to the community today.

Putnam Memorial State Park in Redding has been designated as Connecticut’s first State Archaeological Preserve. The designation, bestowed by the Connecticut Historical Commission, recognizes the archaeological importance of Putnam Memorial State Park and provides additional administrative measures for the park’s protection and professional management.
