Florence Griswold Museum

Description

Florence Griswold was the patron of such early 20th-century American painters as Childe Hassam, Henry Ward Ranger, and Willard Metcalf. The artists who boarded at her late-Georgian-style mansion between 1900 and the early ‘30s painted the surrounding landscapes, adopting European techniques and creating one of America’s first Impressionist school art colonies. Today, her home, a National Historic Landmark, is an art museum. You can also see changing exhibits in the Krieble Gallery, visit an artist’s studio, and stroll 11 acres of grounds. There’s also a gift shop and a café (open May–Oct.).
