Chartered in 1761, Lyme began as a small farming community. It stretches from the banks of the Connecticut River eastward to Smarts Mountain. Located just north of Hanover, Lyme has a picturesque village common and the longest line of contiguous horse sheds in New England, as well as the Dartmouth Skiway and a section of the Appalachian Trail. Residents include families who trace their roots back to Lyme's beginnings as well as newer arrivals, among them many Dartmouth College alumni. It is home to writers and artists, talented tradespeople, and home-based entrepreneurs. Using photographs from 1860 to 1960, Lyme illustrates daily life in this town, from the people who have lived and worked here to their homes and properties. Seen here are the farms, houses of worship, schools, places, and events that make up Lyme's history.
