On Sunday, June 26, 2022 from 12:30-2:30 PM you can join the Putnamville United Methodist Church at the historic Putnamville United Methodist Church, on the Putnamville Public Green (corner of State Road 243 and Highway 40) for their annual Ice Cream Social. Listed on the Register of Historic Places, this church was built in 1834. For a goodwill donation, you can enjoy Bainbridge Dari-Ette ice cream, hot dogs, pies, drinks, and more. The UMW will also hold a bake sale at the social, with music provided by musicians of Gobin UM Church.
You are also invited to tour the 1884 Dr. Horn Office/Putnamville Museum and the Townsend/Layman Museum; an 1828 reconstructed Summer Kitchen for the Townsend Inn and former residence of freed slaves. The museums are located directly north of the church on the Putnamville Public Green. Canned goods for the Putnam County Emergency Food Pantry will be gratefully accepted. Additional parking is available at Abundant Life Baptist Church at the southwest corner of SR 243 and Hwy 40.
