The Old Lyme Historical Society will host its seventh annual dinner and lecture featuring Dr. John Pfeiffer on Friday, April 25, at 6 p.m. at the Lymes’ Senior Center, 26 Town Woods Road, Old Lyme.
In this continuing series, Old Lyme Town Historian, Dr. John Pfeiffer will present a lecture titled “The Grange Hall: The Farms of Old Lyme”. The recent acquisition by the Old Lyme Historical Society of the Grange Hall on Main Street marks the beginning of a new era for the Society. Simultaneously, this purchase symbolized a complete change of a 350 year local way of life.
A long-time researcher, Pfeiffer will focus on the agrarian history of Old Lyme. The evening will begin with libations and a chicken marsala and flank steak dinner catered by Coffee’s Country Market; Pfeiffer’s talk will follow.
