Florence Griswold left a legacy in her love and promotion of American Impressionist paintings. The house who father left her, without the financial means to support it, became a mecca for painters and a boarding house and studio for them to create their work.
Encouraged by Miss Florence, they made her home their own and set out to capture the rolling green hills and pastoral scenes of Old Lyme. Today the house and the gallery, a café and a studio in which you can paint your own canvas are a welcome destination for visitors of all ages. Plan a visit soon. Museum is located at 96 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, exit 70 of I-95, 860-434-5542. Hours are Tuesday to Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
