History and Restoring the Legacy
In 1873, Bennington’s wealthiest industrialist, Henry W. Putnam, built a hotel worthy of his tastes and fortune: The Hotel Putnam. This building still stands today as the symbol of Bennington’s rising downtown.
The entire Putnam Block is being reimagined, and redeveloped to its original beauty. This will include the Courthouse Building, which hosted the Bennington County Courthouse from 1870 to the early 1930s, and the A.H. Winslow Building, the site of Winslow Hardware for over 60 years—and we’re adding some new buildings, too.
The block will feature all the amenities and qualities you’d expect from structures with such history, dignity, and grandeur.
