    Old Lyme ― A ceremony was held at Phoebe Griffin Noyes Library Friday to recognize 10 more Witness Stones being placed at the Lyme Library.

    The Witness Stones program started in Old Lyme in 2020. The group now has a total of 48 stones in Lyme and Old Lyme.

    Richard Wyman and Nikita Waller performed solos. During Wyman’s final solo of the song “This Little Light of Mine“ Waller joined him.

    The Witness Stones program does research to learn about the slaves who lived in an area and recognizes them with a small plaque.
