Lyman is a town in Grafton County, New Hampshire, United States.
Lyman, along with Grantham, Lisbon, and eleven Vermont towns, was granted as compensation to General Phineas Lyman, a commander in the French and Indian War. According to the county gazetteer, "It was granted to Daniel Lyman and sixty-three others, November 10, 1761, its name being derived from the fact that eleven of the grantees bore the name of Lyman. The grantees failed to comply with the requirements of their charter, and thus forfeited their grant, but an extension of time was granted them July 20, 1769." Lyman was incorporated in 1761.
According to the US census, the town has a total area of 28.8 square miles, of which 28.5 sq mi is land and 0.3 sq mi is water, comprising 1.01% of the town. The highest point in town is 2,285 feet above sea level, just east of the summit of Signal Mountain, a knob along the ridge of Gardner Mountain, which defines the town's western boundary.
The town's initial grant included land along the Connecticut River. In 1854 the portion of Lyman found west of "Gardner's Mountain" was separately incorporated as Monroe.
As of the 2010 census, there were 533 people residing in the town, and according to the 2000 census there were 211 households, and 150 families residing in the town. The population density was 17.1 people per square mile. There were 280 housing units at an average density of 9.8 per square mile.
