St. Mary/Putnam Cemetery History
St. Mary/Putnam Cemetery is the crown jewel of the Diocese of Bridgeport’s portfolio of burial grounds. The 75 acres of expansive, rolling property makes it ideal for exploring the headstones and tombstones of the notable former residents interred there. Pets are now permitted to join you provided they are on a leash and cleaned up after.
Visitors are drawn to the Milbank Mausoleum, built in the late 1800s by Jeremiah Millbank, the co-founder of Borden’s Milk Company. Other gravesites include Victor Borge, the entertainer, and Prescott Sheldon Bush, the father of U.S. President George H.W. Bush and grandfather of President George W. Bush.
