Lynn is known as the Shoe City. It is the home of Marshmallow Fluff and
the birthplace of the “Golden Greek.”
For more than a century, the Lynn Museum and Historical Society has collected,
maintained and fostered an appreciation of Lynn through its textiles, paintings, photographs
and historical artifacts.
Ours is a city built on fascinating legacies –legacies that
the Museum is determined to preserve and pass on to future generations.
Fifty nine of these legacies are featured on the following
pages: individuals, families and businesses that have made a
significant contribution to Lynn’s history.
These legacies will be incorporated into the Museum’s
permanent collection. But the list of legacies has only begun
to be compiled; it is by no means complete.
