I grew up in Griswold and moved away during my Junior Year of high school. Once I had kids I longed to be back "home" so my children could enjoy the sense of community and pride I had growing up. This town really cares about the well being of all people in the community! My children and I enjoy all the town events, the youth center is amazing, and the drive our fellow neighbors have to help our community be the best it can be at all times is truly an inspiration. I am so happy that I had the opportunity to show my children what a really community truly is. Although I have not been overall impressed with the special education in our school system, I am very proud of the unity of the town as a whole. They always come together and fight for what they feel is right or just, as well as what is in the best interests of the community as a whole!

Griswold is a small, close knit community that encourages helping others. The schools are amazing! The homes are affordable. I couldn’t be happier to call this town home. I currently see nothing in need of changing at the moment.
Nice mall town living. Close to a couple casinos, malls. Convenient to Boston and New York City. Some great restaurants are centrally located. Close to two different airports.
