Welcome to the Town of Lyme

Lyme is a small, rural community of just over two thousand residents situated on the eastern bank of the Connecticut River in New London County. Our community is about thirty square miles in size with a very low population density.

Lyme is intensely committed to preserving its agricultural heritage and small town quality of life. Lyme residents enjoy the unspoiled beauty associated with an earlier time in New England. Our parks and preserves with their miles of trails and passive recreation opportunities are open to all. We encourage their use and enjoyment by good stewards of the land. [Read more]
