Lynch/van Otterloo YMCA
Deeply rooted in the North Shore, the Marblehead/Swampscott YMCA opened its doors to members in 1859. In 2003, the YMCA secured 19.5 acres of land on Leggs Hill Road to build a state-of-the-art facility. More than $14 million was raised over the course of six years. The building opened to the public on December 13th, 2008 and was formally dedicated as the Carolyn and Peter Lynch/Rose-Marie and Eyk van Otterloo YMCA on January 10, 2009.
