Florence Griswold opened her family home to artists of the time, establishing an art colony which came to be known as the Lyme Art Colony, the center of the American Impressionism movement. Many of the artists painted Miss Griswold’s extensive gardens during their stays. She, like us, continued to search out new and unusual plants for her gardens which were located close to the house. Today, a dedicated group known as the Garden Gang meets often to tend the gardens.
