ABOUT OLD LYME. CT: 

Old Lyme is part of a historic settlement established by the Earl of Warwick in the 1600’s. Beginning in the late           1800’s, our town became famous for a flourishing artists’ community of the emerging “American Impressionism” movement. This tradition has been maintained and expanded over the years by educational and historical institutions such as the Florence Griswold Museum, the Lyme Art Association, and the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts. Today, we still maintain our rural history while vacationers enjoy our historic beaches, the celebrated state park “Gillette Castle”, the classic summertime Hamburg Fair, and our own Fourth of July parade which celebrates our local history as well as that of the nation.molly and mercades 049Located halfway between New York and Boston on the east bank of the picturesque Connecticut River and the shore of Long Island Sound, the Lyme and Old Lyme areas include splendid and unspoiled tidal marshes, tributaries and estuaries. Boating, canoeing and kayaking opportunities are abundant with several areas of public access available. Waterproof maps of canoe and kayak routes are available at our Town Halls. Hamburg Cove, located in Lyme, is well known as one of the most special and popular boating destinations in the northeast.
