The Putnam Railroad Station is an historic former train station at 35 and 45-47 Main Street in Putnam, Connecticut. It is a 1-1/2 story brick building with a central gable-roofed section and flanking hip-roof sections at either end. Its terra cotta tile roof and colored brick give it a flavor of Mediterranean architectural styles. It was at least the third station built to serve the community, which was a railroad junction served by the New York and New England Railroad and the Boston and New York Railroad. The stations was used for passenger service until 1971.[2]

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.[1]
