Florence Griswold (December 25, 1850 - December 6, 1937)
Griswold was a resident of Old Lyme, Conn., who fostered the Impressionist art movement in America, as stated by the Connecticut Women's Hall of Fame. She hosted artists drawn to the attraction of Connecticut's bucolic surroundings, and her home became the center for Impressionist artists in the U.S. Throughout her life Griswold participated in the affairs of Old Lyme. Her home there has since been made into the Florence Griswold Museum, noted for its collection of American Impressionist paintings.
