Old Lyme is a coastal town in New London County. The main street of the town, Lyme Street, is a historic district with several homes once owned by sea captains. Lyme Academy of Fine Arts is located in Old Lyme and there is a thriving art community in the town. There are several seasonal beach communities in Old Lyme (Point O Woods, Hawks Nest, Miami Beach). The town is named after Lyme Regis, England. The Florence Griswold House in Old Lyme housed an art colony for many years in the early 20th century to many prominent American Impressionist painters. The Lyme Art Colony included Childe Hassam, Edward Charles Volkert, Willard Metcalf, Wilson Irvine, and Henry Ward Ranger, among many others. These artists made Old Lyme a thriving art community, which still continues today. The Griswold House was transformed into an art museum, the Florence Griswold Museum, or affectionately called “Flo Gris”, by residents of Old Lyme. Many American Impressionist paintings of the era are of subjects in and around the Griswold House and are featured in the museum, along with many other works and personal possessions of the artists who frequented there. The building of the Old Lyme Congregational Church is known for the many paintings that have been made of it, most notably by Childe Hassam.
It’s no secret that Old Lyme has a rich history but it’s also a tourist destination. Go on a whaler cruise where you can do brunch and see the whales in the area. Do everything from guided tours to scavenger hunts at the Submarine Force Library and Museum Association. Visit the Avery Copp House. Built circa 1800 on the banks of the Thames River, the house passed from generation to generation of the same family and is a wonderful time capsule of local history. Make sure to indulge in the blood orange glazed duck at the The Old Lyme Inn while listening to some smooth jazz. Year round, people flock to Old Lyme to enjoy everything it has to offer, but unfortunately, so do pests. While these bugs and rodents provide benefits to the eco-system in Old Lyme, they can also be a serious problem at homes and businesses. That’s when a professional pest control expert should be called in.
