Resident of Old Lyme, Conn.; after the death of her mother in 1899 opened the family home to summer boarders and shortly thereafter it was discovered by Henry Ward Ranger who was looking for a place to paint; during the following years, Griswold's house served as a center for artists of the American Barbizon and Impressionist movements who came to Old Lyme, providing rooms and meals; in many cases, Griswold also served as agent for the artists.
