Current Issue


Spring is finally here! In this issue of the Putnam Traveler we feature some great places to explore throughout the Quiet Corner and beyond.

There have been some significant changes in downtown Putnam. Artique and The Complex Performing Arts Center have moved to the former NOMA building and Lynthia Designs has moved and expanded to a street-level shop on Main Street.

First Fridays is back again for its seventh season featuring the arts, music, crafts and costumes; the theme this year is cinema. Speaking of music, enjoy live performances at The Stomping Ground and Victoria’s Station Cafe in Putnam and at The Vanilla Bean Cafe in Pomfret.

There are plenty of ways to enjoy the outdoors, including the popular River Trail in Putnam, the trails at the Audubon Center in Pomfret, Old Furnace State Park in Danielson and nearby Purgatory Chasm located in Sutton, MA. Plus so much more!
