The town of Lee was incorporated in 1777, and named after General Charles Lee, 2nd in command to George Washington during the course of the colonist's fight for freedom from the oppressive rule of England.

Lee is famed for papermaking and for its marble. Lee Marble, said to be the hardest and finest quality marble in the world, was used in the construction of the nation's Capitol building, St Patrick's Cathedral, Columbia University, Grant's Tomb, NYC City Hall and the Empire State Building. The Massachusetts Statehouse and Boston Public Library, as well as many of downtown Lee's finest structures, were also made with Lee marble.

Downtown Lee is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The farmhouses, estates, business blocks and factories that have given life to this town since 1760 still exist. Just waiting for your visit.
