Putney General Store to Open Soon

The Putney General Store, which burned in 2008 and again (to the ground this time) in 2009, will be opening soon.

The Putney Historical Society, which bought the building in 2008, raised money to rebuild it not once, but twice. Stevens & Associates provided structural and civil engineering services to the project, and we’re very excited to see it close to completion.

The building has long been a big part of Putney’s downtown core – as a look at the images sent by historical society (to the right) shows. The rebuilt store echoes the historical original, from the symmetrical store windows to the hand-cut timber frame.
