Putney ©
Putney is a town in Windham County, Vermont, United States. Step off the beaten path and head to Green Mountain Orchards and Saxtons River Distillery. Get out of town with these interesting Putney side-trips: Vermont Country Store (in Rockingham) and Bennington (Bennington Museum, Bennington Battle Monument, & more). There's still lots to do: relax in the rural setting at Robb Family Farm, take in the views from Creamery Covered Bridge, and don't miss a visit to Rockingham Meeting House.

For maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Putney online trip itinerary maker .
