A curious mix of authors, painters, and mariners inhabits Old Lyme, a lovely village that revels in its artsy reputation as well as its nautical one. It’s no surprise that Old Lyme can employ the word colony to describe itself—it has long attracted residents who fall neatly into one or more of these three categories. One of the earliest and most permanent of these groups were the artists who gathered at the home of Miss Florence Griswold from 1899 until nearly four decades past the turn of the century. Known as the Lyme Art Colony, the folks who lived at Miss Florence’s beautiful late-Georgian mansion played with light, color, and texture until they successfully settled upon characteristics which later became known as American Impressionism. Long before Old Lyme caught the attention of artists, it had been an enclave of mariners. Back in 1665, when the town’s first thirty families split off from the colony at Saybrook to form their own union, many citizens were farmers and a few were merchants. The water and the rivers bordering their land caught their attention, but for more practical reasons than light and shadow. Maritime trade and shipbuilding became the principal industries of the village during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
