1886 Grafton County Gazetteer

The 1886 Grafton County Gazetteer is an interesting snapshot of Lyme in the late 19th century.  The Gazetteer is broken into two parts.  The first is a detailed history of the town written by Lyme resident P. H. A. Claflin.  You can find that starting on page 670 of the link.  Here’s a sample:
