PUTNAM - Putnam United Presbyterian Church have announced the opening of the "church school."
The current school in Putnam is where all the town's students were sent following consolidation of the school district. Each of the small, local schools were eventually converted to homes,or fell into disrepair. The "church school #1," as it was known, has been restored for quite some time, but it is now open to the public. The schoolhouse will be open each Sunday through Oct. 18 noon to 4 p.m.
The Putnam senior citizens have worked on a project to bring much of Putnam's history alive through primary sources, artifacts and pictures, all of which are on display at the former school on Lower Road in Putnam.
