Putnam History Museum’s new exhibition, Treason! Benedict Arnold in the Hudson Highlands, is now open. The exhibition includes prints, photographs, books, engravings, and artifacts. It will tell the story of Benedict Arnold, his command of West Point, and his acts of treason.

Guests are welcome to take a free brochure that highlights Arnold-related places throughout the Hudson Highlands and an essay by PHM’s Collections Associate, John Duncan. In addition, we have installed a new children’s corner with American Revolution activities, including secret messages and decoders, toys, and books.

The Treason! Benedict Arnold in the Hudson Highlands exhibition is funded in part by grants from the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area, Humanities New York, Central Hudson, and the ongoing support of our members.
