After all that activity, take a coffee break and check out what's brewing along the trail at the Freight House Cafe. "The building itself was built in 1872, it was the first freight house built for the old Putnam railroad line," says owner Donna Massaro.

The building played a large role in the 19th century railway system, and today it helps to fuel visitors along the Putnam Trailway. "People will call us and we'll take their order and then we'll put it in the pulley system, we will pulley it up to them," says Massaro. The system bringing contactless delivery to another level!
