— Putnam Memorial State Park —

The two mounds of stones inside the square formed by the granite posts, were thought to be the camp cemetery. Accordingly, a memorial marker was erected to mark the site in 1902.
Archaeology work has proven this site to be that of a double-ended (two chimneys) officer's quarters. Further research has pointed to the distinct probability that the hut belonged to Lt. Col. Henry Dearborn.
