The Putnam House History


The Putnam House Restaurant is located at 12 Depot Place in Bethel, Connecticut. The Putnam House building was built in 1852 as The Putnam House Hotel. The hotel, at the time, was owned by Frank A. Judd. Mr. Judd was a partner of J.B. & F.A Judd Hatters Co. Frank A. Judd\'s Office at the time was on Center Street, (which is now Greenwood Ave.) Frank was married to Sarah E. Conklin and was probably a member of the early Bethel family for whom Judd Avenue is named. The land on which the Putnam House was built belonged to Seth Seelye, the town\'s first selectman and prominent Bethelite whose home was donated by heirs to be used as the library.
Little is known about the hotel or its operations, but during the next century, the house changed hands several times. In 1955, it was purchased by George Shaker, local realtor, and turned into apartments until it was turned into the first of six restaurants in 1982.
