The Putnam Railroad Station is a 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 April 30, 1971, when Penn Central dropped the sole round trip from New London to Worcester since it was not included in the initial Amtrak system.[2] Service from Hartford to Boston via Putnam on the former NY&NE ended in 1955 when the Flood of 1955 washed out the bridge just south of downtown. The station building is currently (2017) occupied by "The Crossings" Restaurant and Brew Pub[3].

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