Putnam County Park
For information and shelter reservations call 562-0518.
The Putnam County Park is located on 200 acres of land that is owned by the Town of Eleanor and leased to Putnam County Parks and Recreation. The park has 5 shelters for rent, 2 ball fields used by the area teams, basketball court, one room school and a swimming pool. The Putnam County Fair grounds is also located in the park.
The Eleanor Town Council voted September 7, 2000 to renew the lease with Putnam County Parks and Recreation for another twenty five years. It is our hope that the Putnam County Parks and Recreation and the Town of Eleanor can work more closely together to insure the future of this park. It is important we preserve this green space for future generations to enjoy. We would like to see some of the original plans for this park put into place within the next several years. This included camp sites, shelters and play ground equipment. Working together, we can achieve this goal.
Alcohol and Drugs are absolutely prohibited in Putnam County Parks.
This is strickly enforced!
This land offers the opportunity for Eleanor residents and Park visitors to take a leisurely stroll and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature.
Lett One Room School
Lett School, so named for the Lett Family who lived in the area served by the school, was built on Heizer Creek near Poca in the summer of 1936.
The school was moved to the County Park in 1967 where it now stands on it's original foundation of cut sandstone rocks. The school has been renovated and restored as much as possible to it's original condition. Opening and Dedication Ceremonies were held for the school June 22, 1980.

I doubt if there is a boy or girl that lived in Eleanor in the 40's, 50's and early 60's that hasn't played in this creek or in these woods.
This beautiful land was a place to swim, fish, hunt and camp out for a few days. It was enjoyed by all ages, but mostly by the youngsters. It is not uncommon to hear the older residents talk about the great times they enjoyed on this land when they were growing up.
It was a safe haven for the town's children.
"Does it bring back memories for you?"
