Little Boston School

East Lyme

The school was originally founded near the Thomas Lee house and farm by the Second Ecclesiastical Society of Lyme in 1734.  The building pictured here was built on land deeded to the Society by the Lee family in 1805.  Classes were held in this building up until 1922.  It has been restored to resemble what it might have looked like back in the early parts of the 20th Century.


  1. The one room, country school has become an icon of past American history. Good catch.

  2. Isn't it remarkable how small the old school buildings of New England small towns were? This one would fit nicely at Old Sturbridge Village.
