Photo Gallery: Rye Then and Now

View past and present pictures of key landmarks in Rye.

Rye, the oldest permanent settlement in the county, has changed considerably since its founding as a town in 1660. Rye became a city in 1942 and is home to nearly 15,000 residents, many of whom enjoy landmarks such as Rye Town Park and beach, the Square House Museum and the Village Green.

As part of our efforts to celebrate all things Rye during its 350th anniversary this year, we've compiled a photo gallery with pictures of Rye past and present.

Feel free to leave comments below about your favorite photo and landmark in Rye. Does your family have a history in the area that is as deep as Rye's? We welcome you to to add your photos to our gallery.

Thank you Lisa and Satta, for these beautiful historic photos and to the present time. Most towns with an interesting history should do the same. Love it and will share them!
