I mark this as average because nearly every site was roped off so you couldn't actually explore the room and there was a very limited amount of period artifacts on display in each of the buildings. This is self-guided or has an audio guide that was more distracting than actually helpful. This would be much better with a guided at the top of each hour and preferably with someone who knows a great deal about this time and history. We had a very young tour guide for the mansion tour (which is at certain times) but she was so young that I had no confidence in asking any questions about the home and time period. Most of the home furnishing are donations and not original family owned. There were slave passages and rooms I would have liked to be able to see. I bet the school tours are fun and informational and the special events with multiple volunteers in traditional garb would be more educational and interactive.

I have had the good fortune as a living historian to attend a number of events over the last 20 years at Lyme Village. I would highly recommend the village to everyone. The staff is very knowledgeable and some of the kindest people I have had the opportunity to work with. I hope to continue to visit the village for many more years to come.

We stopped here on our way to Kelley’s Island. We initially stopped to see the adjacent building housing the postmark museum. Upon stopping we realized there were historic buildings and markers to see. There are a number of log houses and other buildings from the 1800s. Great to learn history of The Firelands. We got a nice informative tour of Annie Brown log cabin. There was a school group so we didn’t go in the houses.

Calling all history buffs! Lyme Village has a historic mansion, and a vast assortment of historic structures, from a post office, to a school, a church, a cabin and a hardware store, all from the past and filled with original photos and artifacts. My tour was an hour and a half and most enjoyable. I highly recommend it!

Take a step back in time of the 19th century to experience life of our forefathers, including hardships, daily routines, celebrations and traditions. The 15 acres will WOW history buffs and educate those not so familiar with the times. The society has many special events throughout the year including the highlight Christmas of Yesteryear. They also offer beautiful settings for weddings if you want the unique small atmosphere.
