The Putnam residence is an unmarked location within Lewis & Sons Farming Supply in the Forest region of Appalachia.


The Putnam residence was built within a barn on the grounds of Lewis & Sons Farming Supply, a pre-War store and farming property in West Virginia. George Putnam, the patriarch of the family, was a cousin of Lewis, who did not survive the bombs dropping. After hearing that Appalachia was safe to resettle in 2103, the Putnam family traveled to the region to see if the farm supply was still around. Seeing that it was abandoned, they decided to build their new home within the property's barn.[1][2]

  1. Notice: New owners
  2. Vault Dweller: "This is your farm? The signs outside said 'Lewis & Sons.'"
    Carol Putnam: "Might not be Lewis, or Sons, but this here's ours."
    George Putnam: "Lewis was a cousin o' mine, back in the day, God rest his soul. He and his family didn't make it when the bombs fell. We were looking a good place to put down roots when we heard it was safe to come back to West Virginia. I told Carol we ought to see if this place was still here."
    Carol Putnam: "Even after all these years, there was enough salvageable tools and such to make starting a farm easier here than your average homestead. Didn't see any point in updating the sign."
