Lyndon Area Historical Society

The Lyndon Area Historical Society seeks to reaffirm the commitment to preserve the Lyndon Congregational Church and preserve and archive Lyndon’s venerable history. Great efforts have gone into the restoration of the building’s 130 year-old sanctuary.  For residents and visitors, you are strongly encouraged to visit this piece of Lyndon’s history as it offers some interesting insight about Lyndon’s beginnings, the people who lived here, and how it has shaped over time.

Their mission is as follows:

  • To restore the Lyndon Area Historical Society to a viable community center
  • To convert the sanctuary for public use – celebrations and events
  • To preserve and archive Lyndon’s venerable history
  • To create a media, technology, and genealogy center
