Description: Join us on a tour around the sites pertinent to Litchfield's influential school for young women, founded in 1792 by Miss Sarah Pierce. We'll see where the future leaders who attended this school lived, worked, and played, and discuss their interactions with the students from the Litchfield Law School, the town's other illustrious center of learning in the 18th and 19th century. Wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water. Each walking tour lasts about one hour.
