Putnamville is an unincorporated community in Warren Township, Putnam County, Indiana, United States. It lies along U.S. Route 40 at the intersection of State Road 243. Putnamville was named after American Revolutionary War hero and Putnam County namesake Israel Putnam. Located in Putnamville is the Lincoln Park Speedway, which features different types of oval-track dirt racing, including sprint cars, and is held every Saturday evening throughout the spring, summer and fall. Also located just a half mile west of Putnamville is the Putnamville Correctional Facility, also known as "the state farm". One interesting fact about Putnamville: not only did Abraham Lincoln come through on his way to Springfield, Illinois on the National Road (now US 40), he stayed the night in a small hotel, which is still there today, located just a few blocks behind the old post office.
