The Lymans in Waltham
The Lyman Estate in Waltham was the beloved country retreat for four generations of the Lyman family from 1793 to 1952. Just as each Lyman generation shaped the estate to its needs and interests, the family influenced how the community developed around their property, both during their ownership and in the years since. What was life like there? How did the property evolve over time? How did Waltham change during this time? Come learn about one of the grandest and most intact country estates in the Metro Boston area in an illustrated lecture examining the Lyman family and their legacy in Waltham. Explore the newly refurbished first floor of the mansion following the lecture. Co-sponsored with the Waltham Historical Society.
