Lyman Homestead Tours at Lyman Orchards

This is an opportunity to see inside the historic 1864 Lyman Homestead and hear highlights from the family’s heritage on the land since 1741 will be offered by Lyman Orchards on Saturday, February 4, 2023 at 11am and 1pm and Sunday, March 5, 2023 at 11am.

A guided tour of several rooms of the Homestead will include a brief overview of eight generations of Lymans, with a focus on David Lyman II (1820-1871), who used a fortune earned from manufacturing washing machines and wringers in Middlefield to build the grand Homestead at 3 Lyman Rd.

The tour will last about 40 minutes. The tour will be guided by local historian Diana Ross McCain, author of six books on Connecticut history, including Thy Children’s Children, a historical novel based on the true story of the first five generations of the Middlefield Lymans. Tickets for the tour are $10 per person.
