STATEMENT OF SIGNIFICANCE:
Built for Enoch Putnam, who came to Montpelier in 1868 to run the boardinghouse for the new Vermont Methodist Seminary, and who later made his fortune in the grocery business (Putnam & Marvin at #42 Main St.). Around 1929 the clapboards were covered with shingles and the rear carriage barn was converted to two apartments. This is an interesting house, rich in details.
