Welcome to Lyme, NH

Lyme is a rural community located in the Upper Valley region of New Hampshire along the Connecticut River. Some think our name came from Lyme, Connecticut and others mention Lyme Regis, England. The spelling on the original 1761 charter of "Lime" has been attributed to an error by Governor Wentworth's secretary. The original settlers were from Palmer, Belchertown and Brookfield in Massachusetts. Lyme contains 53.8 square miles of land, 28.7 miles of paved and 38.7 miles of gravel roads. In 2010 it had a population of 1,716

Re-register to Vote! 

 June 23rd, 2021 

Lyme residents and voters—  The Supervisors of the Checklist have mailed letters to a number of Lyme voters.  If you receive the letter, please read it carefully.  It means that you have not voted in the past four years and you must now re-register to vote.  This is mandated by state  law.  To complete a new registration form, you may either come to the Town Clerk’s Office during regular office hours or go to a meeting of the Supervisors on July 29th.  This is all intended to remove from the Checklist people who no longer live in Lyme but have not told us of their move from town.  All eligible residents of Lyme have a right to vote.  If you receive the letter, please take the necessary action to ensure that you remain on the checklist.  We all thank you for your help in protecting our voting system.
