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.
