Take a “historic look-back” at the Putnam’s trip to the Ohio frontier, life at Farmer’s Castle during the hostilities, the building of their home (Maple Shade) and the farmstead, the Blennerhassetts as neighbors and friends, and their deaths only 3 days apart.
Five generations of this Putnam Family have called the Putnam-Houser House their home. This one-hour program will be held at the Maple Shade to include a house tour and lecture.
The cost of this event is $5.00 for adults. Call Blennerhassett Island Historical State Park museum at (304) 420-4800 if you have questions or to purchase tickets. This event concludes the 2023 Saturday History Series.
