Since 2003, the Putnam County Museum has been bridging generations, connecting communities, and helping to preserve Putnam County’s past. Whether you are a lifelong resident of the area or a visitor to our community, you are cordially invited to visit us and learn more about Putnam County.
The mission of the Putnam County Museum is to collect, preserve, and interpret the natural, historical and cultural heritage of the county.
The Museum is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization and contributions are tax deductible. Dues and donations are the main source of the Museum's operating funds. 


In the late 1990's the Putnam County Historical Society sought a permanent home for the collection, preservation and protection of artifacts and stories relating to Putnam County and its people. Public meetings were held in concert with Main Street Greencastle, the Putnam County Convention and Visitors Bureau, and interested community members.


Be sure to visit our blog page for an intriguing narrative on Putnam County history. Larry Tippin, the Putnam County Historian, gives all who visit an indepth look into some of our fascinating local history.
