This project included the development of a community center in the historic barn located in the Lyman Heritage Area. The barn is located in the immediate proximity of various other buildings, which comprised the previously known Lyman Experimental Farm.
The site was placed in public use in 1915 and expanded in 1930. Development of the site will remain sensitive to the rural and historic integrity of the overall site.
Site improvements will include one additional access point to a public parking area for visitors and patrons of the barn. Walkways and patio gathering places will be developed to facilitate pedestrian access grouping.
This project will restore life and vitality to the Heritage Area and historic buildings remaining. The Community Center will provide much needed facilities for a variety of social and civic activities. The site is of historic significance and the buildings are of sound condition. Improvements of these facilities will provide a great cultural and educational asset in the Town of Lyman.
