Exhibits and Events

Even though we are closed, we have prepared exhibits to be visible from the outdoors through our windows.  Humorously labeled as “peep shows”, they are “open” for viewing at any time.

First Saturdays
The first Saturday of the month from January to April will we be hosting a long time Lyme resident to share his/her stories of life in Lyme.  Suspended during the pandemic.

Chesley Schoolhouse – closed for the winter

Location: 161 Baker Hill Rd.

Basically unchanged since it closed its doors in 1959.  19th – 20th c. desks and books from Lyme schools, the old bell from the Hewes Schoolhouse, and photos all displayed along with the old blackboards and walls.  Children accompanied by an adult welcome!  (Best for ages 5 and up)
