Best Places to Live Near Putnam Cottage

Putnam Cottage is a historic site in Greenwich, CT. Built in the 17th century, the house became synonymous with General Israel Putnam after his infamous escape from British forces during the Revolutionary War. The cottage has a colorful history, from originally being used as a family home to a meeting place for the Freemasons in the 1700's. General George Washington and his entourage even had lunch there when it was known as Knapp's Tavern.

In 1902 the building was bought by a group of town residents and made into a museum. Today there is learning center for students as well as guided tours for all visitors. The site also hosts Revolutionary War celebrations.

The building has been restored to appear as it did as a cottage during colonial times and to conform to modern building standards.
