Shared by The Lyme Historians
Do you know that there were once 16 schools in Lyme? Do you know why there were so many in this small town, or where they were each located?
Find out for yourself with the upcoming self-guided driving tour of all 25 sites (several of them were moved a few times) of these schoolhouses from August 8-22.
You’ll need our booklet, Historic Schoolhouses of Lyme ($5) and probably the enlarged map that goes with it ($1).
The Historians will have both for sale outside our barn on Saturdays in August, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for an earlier sale.
Starting Aug. 8, there will be numbered stakes at each site.
To get you further oriented and informed before you pile in the car, Adair Mulligan will offer her lively, fact and photo-filled ZOOM presentation about our Lyme schoolhouses on Thursday, Aug. 6 at 7:00pm.
