How YOU Can Help with Preserving East Lyme History

   The East Lyme Room at the Public Library on Society Road in East Lyme contains a vast collection of photos and papers of East Lyme history, cared for by members of the East Lyme Historical Society. The Archive Group is always looking for items to add to the East Lyme Historical collections.

   You can help document our past and still keep your photos, letters and documents in the possession of your family.  Here are some of the items in the archives:

Books of local history,
Photographs of people, homes, and businesses
Diaries, journals and ledgers
Programs and advertisements of past events
Postcards of East Lyme
Newspaper articles
Scrapbooks

Any items you have DO NOT have to be given to the Archives.
