Honoring the Lives of Enslaved Persons

Jenny Mock Up.jpg

Between 1670 and 1820 more than 200 enslaved African Americans and indigenous people labored in the historic town of Lyme.

Today, Witness Stones honor the humanity and the contributions of vital members of our community. The bronze plaques that mark sites of enslavement on Lyme Street restore forgotten history and serve as memorials to those once held here in bondage.
