Putnum's Wolf Den

More from my son's and my post card project.

This is the site of Israel Putnum's Wolf Den in Pomfret, CT. It was here that Putnum killed the last wolf in CT in 1742.

As you can see from my photo, it hasn't changed that much over the years. The site was added to the Historic Register in 1895 and has been maintained by the State of CT as a state park ever since.
