Lyme Heritage Commission
Established under New Hampshire laws at Town Meeting in March 2011, the Lyme Heritage Commission endeavors to raise awareness of Lyme’s historic assets as well as function as a source of information on restoration and preservation. Greater awareness should enhance efforts to preserve and protect historic buildings and other features that give Lyme so much of its special character. The Commission has no regulatory power; it is strictly a source of information and advice. In addition, the Commission is not funded by the town with tax receipts but raises any money needed through private donations and grants.
In keeping with its mission, the Commission’s first project is compiling an inventory of Lyme’s historic assets, including buildings (houses, barns, schools, churches, bridges, and so on) and certain landscape features, such as stone culverts. Under the direction of a professional architectural historian and working with the Lyme Historians, this survey is currently (2012) under way and should be completed by year end. This survey should be a helpful resource for Lyme residents seeking information about their properties and also to Lyme town committees involved in planning and zoning.
Consisting of five members (including one Select Board representative), and two alternates, the Commission meets on the third Tuesday of each month at the Lyme Center Academy Building, 7 p.m. The public is welcome to attend, and individuals are welcome to consult the Commission regarding particular projects or concerns. Please feel free to call a Commission member to be placed on a meeting agenda.
