The mission of the Old Lyme Historical Society, Incorporated, is to collect, preserve, and interpret the rich history of Old Lyme, Connecticut and its environs for

the benefit of residents and visitors. 


Aspects of cultural, economic, social, and architectural life in Old Lyme from the earliest settlements to the present are here for the public to view through the internet, exhibits, walking tours, and original publications.
