About Old Lyme
Old Lyme is a coastal town located in New London County, in the southeast part of the state. Originally known as Black Hall, the town separated from Old Saybrook in 1655. In 1855 it was incorporated under the name of South Lyme. Only two years later, the town got its current name. Shipbuilding, fishing, and shipping were prevalent branches of the town's commerce due to its location at the mouth of the Connecticut River. Today, Old Lyme is a famous resort area for its splendid beaches. Also, the town is a perfect destination for artists for its thriving art community and renowned art school.
