Brief History Of Florence Griswold Museum

Griswold’s story began in 1841 as a wedding present to his wife, Helen Powers, when the fortunate Captain Robert Griswold purchased the house and 14 acres’ grounds for $3,000. The Griswold was founded by the Connecticut family, comprising two state legislators and a Nation Supreme Court justice. Old Lyme was then the core of ship manufacturing and exchange. The mansion is well appropriate to its social class and demands. The Ocean Queen, a node ship carrying travelers and boxes in the planned race between Old Lyme and London, was sailed by Captain Griswold.
