Located on an 13-acre site in the historic town of Old Lyme, Connecticut, the Florence Griswold Museum features the restored Florence Griswold House, where the artists of the Lyme Art Colony lived, a gallery of changing art exhibitions, education and landscape centers, extensive gardens, and a restored artist’s studio. Visitors can stand at Childe Hassam's favorite painting spot, stroll Miss Florence's lovingly restored garden, and rest where Chadwick posed his model for the now famous, On the Piazza.

The Bush-Holley House features two distinct time periods – the New Nation (1790-1825), when it was owned by a wealthy merchant, and its later life as a boarding house and home to the Cos Cob art colony (1890-1920). The house displays art and furnishings from both eras. The artists of the “Cos Cob Clapboard School,” as Childe Hassam dubbed it, found inspiration in the atmospheric old house.
