Putman's Lock Grocery, owned by the Garret Putman family from 1855 into the 1900s, is typical of the many stores which lined the canal. Part of the store, which contained living quarters and rooms for rent, was destoyed by fire in the 1930s. The basement was used as a tavern. The room behind the French doors was for general sales, displaying goods which ranged from clothing and tobacco for the canaller to harnesses and hay for the draft animals. The porch was a meeting place for those whose lives depended on the canal.
