Lynn Library Digital Heritage Collection

The Lynn Public Library's Digital Heritage Collection presents historical photographs relating the history of our community. Lynn was settled by colonists from the New England Company in Salem in 1629 on land that originally included what is today Swampscott, Nahant, Lynnfield and Saugus. The Lynn Public Library has a large and varied collection of historic images divided among several collections. These images provide a fascinating look at Lynn during the early 20th century.

Inventor of the Shoe-lasting Machine

Jan Matzeliger not only revolutionized the shoe industry but made Lynn, the "shoe capital of the world. Colonial Lynn was a major part of shoe-making in 1635, and tannery industries of the early U.S. colonies, which reportedly includes the boots worn by Continental Army soldiers during the Revolutionary War. This historic theme is reflected in the city seal, which features a colonial boot.

Lynn Shore Drive History | The Metropolitan District Commission acquired private properties in the early 1900's in order to create the two abutting reservations along the present day Lynn Shore Drive. Many buildings, including Samuel Soule's 1855 Hotel Nahant, were removed in order to assure public access, protect important natural features and provide open space.
