The Old Lyme Historical Society Announces "Noteworthy Houses of Old Lyme"
Noteworthy Houses of Old Lyme is this year’s publication produced by the Old Lyme Historical Society. It consists of a 16” X 20” four color poster of eleven local houses built between 1666 and 1913 and an accompanying booklet which not only describes the architectural features of the houses, but also includes a snap shot of information about events occurring in Connecticut around the time the houses were built. Written by Alison C. Mitchell and Michaelle Pearson with additional research by Leslie Markowicz, it promises to be one of the most popular publications put out by the Society. Mitchell noted in her introduction that choosing which houses to include was not easy because Old Lyme is fortunate to have many historically interesting houses with fascinating stories associated with them. The handsome photography and poster design are by James Meehan of James Meehan Art & Design. The posters and accompanying booklets are available for purchase at the Old Lyme Pheobe Griffin Noyes Library, The Florence Griswold Museum, and other local merchants.
