The Old Lyme Historic District Commission has inaugurated a plaque program to acknowledge historic buildings in the District. Buildings constructed prior to the outbreak of World War II in 1939 are eligible. The 16 inch x 13 inch white oval plaques cost $100 plus tax and contain the name of the original owner or the structure's purpose (Grange Hall, etc.) and the approximate date of construction. An Historic Plaque application may be obtained from the OLHDC by calling 434-1605 ext 224, or from the HDC's web page.
