This is 3 of 7 posts of photographs that I took during a recent trip to Putnam Memorial State Park in Redding, CT.

The visitor center had descriptions of historical events during the Revolutionary War time period, weapons, tools, and a 3D diagram of the camp. (Note: the Dragoon helmut was in the museum.)

1. VISITOR CENTER – This building was originally built in 1893 as the park pavilion. It was used as a shelter during inclement weather, for dances and picnics, and for town events. The upstairs was used as the original park museum. The building was dismantled board by board in 2005, and reconstructed into a 4-season climate controlled visitor center where visitors can get a park orientation prior to entering the historic encampment.
