I know there will be others who will know a lot more than I, but hey, I'll chime in anyway.

Been there once - family was looking into buying a home in the area so we went to check it out...seems like a very small town, have heard good things about the diner and the co-op is supposed to be great. Seems like lots of farms, and it looks like it's real quiet...didn't seem like there were a lot of job prospects in town, I guess Bratt is the closest hub?

It was really pretty though...

Sorry I can't be of more help!

I don't live in Putney, but have been there alot, especially when my kids used to take horseback riding lessons at one of the barns there. I'm not personally familiar with the status of the public elementary school, but the buildings and grounds appear to be in good condition and they have sports fields and I know there is a town pool.

The, General Store just burned, which was essentially the gathering spot, but it's being rebuilt. The center of town has the general store and another smaller convenience store, the Putney Diner, a bookstore, Putney Village Pizza, Basketville, Silver Forest (jewelry), Penelope Wurr Glass and an pricey clothing store. The Front Porch Cafe is a great place to eat (brunch, yummy!) and sit on the front porch & watch the activity. The co-op is at the end of town near the I-91 entrance, clean,good selection and food served there. Curtis B-B-Q is across from the co-op and there is a boat launch for the CT River too. Green Mountain Apple Orchards, public elementary school (I think thru' 8th) and then high school in Brattleboro. Also private schools, The Putney School, Greenwood School and The Grammar School. It's home to Landmark College for students with dyslexia, attention-deficit disorder, or specific learning disabilities.

In November they have the Putney Craft Tour http://www.putneycrafts.com/

The Putney Paper Mill is located right in the center of town. You used to be able to tell it was there, but they've cleaned it up a lot due to state & fed regulations.

Brattleboro is about 15 min south via I-91 or Route 5. Half-way there on Route 5 is Walker's Farm in Dummerston, great vegetables and plants, really wonderful farmstand and nice people.

Putney has the reputation of being an artisan town and is unique.

I lived in Putney for about 5 years. I think nhrocky gave a pretty complete overall picture. What kind of info were you seeking?
