Old Lyme

Spectacular Beaches, Art Galleries and Exquisite Estates

Old Lyme was established by the Earl of Warwick in 1631, occupied in 1635, and settled and named in 1636. It is a community of less than 8,000 permanent residents and an additional several thousand seasonal visitors who occupy a shoreline complex of summer residences. Located on the east bank of the mouth of the Connecticut River where it meets Long Island Sound, and continues along the shoreline of the Sound. Independence, volunteering, and a long-standing commitment to the arts mark the town. Fine examples of Colonial and Federal architecture line our main streets and winding country roads. Many vibrant beach communities along the shoreline enjoy summer activities, including a Carousel, beach shops, famous beach donuts and ice cream venues. Old Lyme is also home to Rogers Lake and offers several smaller parks and boat landings on the Connecticut River and tidal estuaries. The town is home to the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, and the Florence Griswold Museum recalling a historic group of artists known as the Lyme Art Colony. Annual events include the Mid-Summer Festival and a 4th of July beach parade in Sound View beach.
