The Smith-Harris House is located on the north side of Society Road, between the Lillie B. Haynes School and the East Lyme Community Center.

The Smith-Harris House

The Smith-Harris House is located at 33 Society Road in the Niantic section of East Lyme.

The House is open for tours during the months of June, July and August, Friday through Sunday from noon to 4 p.m., or by appointment. (We are closed for the July 4th holiday.) Admission is free, but donations are always welcomed and appreciated.

In addition to the House, the property includes lovely gardens and a nature walk, and we encourage you to visit even when the museum is not open.

The grounds and the barn are an ideal place to have a special gathering or fundraising event. The barn can be rented for $25.00 per hour, with a four hour minimum. No alcohol is permitted on the grounds, and a certificate of liability insurance is required. For more information on rental of the property, please phone 860.739.2762.
