The land that comprises Lyme was first granted in 1761 by Governor Benning Wentworth. It name is taken from “Old Lyme,” a town located in Connecticut at the mouth of the Connecticut River. In the 1770s, Lyme was one of 16 local towns that petitioned to join Vermont, a then-independent state. Vermont ultimately joined the Union in 1791, and these petitions were unsuccessful.
