Florence Griswold Museum

Florence Griswold Museum
96 Lyme Street

Florence Griswold opened her timeworn family home to artists searching for a quite country retreat where they could rejuvenate their spirits and find sources of inspiration. The group was known as the Lyme Art Colony and Miss Florence's boardinghouse became the center of Impressionism in America. To honor Miss Florence and the Colony, the Florence Griswold Museum was established and has flourished in exciting ways. Learn about the progression from respected local house museum to one of New England’s premier tourist destinations by viewing the timeline.
