America's Pastimes: Sports and Recreation in Litchfield
The Litchfield Historical Society will open its newexhibit, America’s Pastimes: Sports and Recreation in Litchfield, in April 2016. Taking a holistic view at sports and recreation from Litchfield’s founding to the present, the exhibit examines the important role of these activities as sources of competition, engagement, health, friendship, and fun within our community. The exhibit runs from April 16 through November 27, 2016, reopening in the spring of 2017.
Reimagining the Reeve House Landscape
On view from August 9 through November 27, 2016, this exhibit will display landscape plans for the Tapping Reeve House property, as well as a history of gardens and interesting landscapes in Litchfield. The Historical Society has re-imagined the six acre Tapping Reeve site, not as a strict interpretation of a time period, but rather as a community resource with landscape elements that would have been found on the site, and in Litchfield, from the 18th to the 20th centuries.
