Lyme Soldiers in World War I Featured in Lyme Public Hall Exhibit on View Today

Lyme World War I veteran Maurice Hall Peck.

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, the Lyme Public Hall Association presents an exhibition, Lyme in the Great War, Wednesday, July 4, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Saturday, July 7, from 1 to 4 p.m. 

The displays draw on material from the Lyme Local History Archives, the World War I collection of the Connecticut State Library and Lyme families. Letters, photographs, and documents tell the stories of 27 Lyme men and one woman who served between 1917 and 1919 and the organizations back home that supported them.

The exhibit is the culmination of two years of research by the staff of the Lyme Local History Archives.

The exhibit will be on view at the Lyme Public Hall, which is located at 249 Hamburg Road (Rte. 156) in Lyme, Conn.

Admission is free.

The Lyme Public Hall Association is dedicated to the appreciation of Lyme’s history, culture, and community through the preservation and use of the historic hall, its archives and historical programs.
