Thomas Lee House [CT]

The Thomas Lee House, located in East Lyme, CT, is one of the oldest wood frame houses in Connecticut in its primitive state. The original structure dates to circa 1660, with additions having been made circa 1700 and circa 1765. The site is located by the Little Boston Schoolhouse (dating to circa 1805 and also open to the public).

The house offers period rooms, exhibits, colonial days for fourth graders, and the possibility of scheduling tours.
