Notes
Survey number HABS CT-369
Significance: Israel Putnam School has historical significance as the town's first modern school building. Completed in 1902, the grammar school embodied early 20th-century concerns for fire safety, generous light and ventilation, and student amenities. The building also has architectural significance: its quoins, Classical details, and arcaded entry typify the revival styles of the period and were intended to reflect the community's commitment to education and progress.
