Witness Stones in Old Lyme
Witness Stones in Old Lyme mark sites of enslavement and serve as memorials to vital but forgotten members of our community. The small brass plaques embedded along Lyme Street present details drawn from land records, emancipation certificates, and other primary sources that document the circumstances of those who lived here enslaved. The plaques, installed flush with the ground, have been placed primarily on the west side of the street. An interpretive sign and map of the Old Lyme Witness Stones Project is located on the lawn of the Old Lyme Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library. Postcards of the project are available at the Old Lyme Memorial Town Hall and at Partnership locations throughout the town.
