Description: Throughout 2016, The Litchfield Historical Society will present an exhibition America’s Pastimes: Sports and Recreation in Litchfield. In partnership with the Historical Society we are offering a program that takes you back to the grand days of Whitehall and Alain and May White. Learn about the state-of-the-art summer home, the grounds, and the leisurely pursuits enjoyed on the property. The program begins in the Ceder Room with a montage of historical photographs. A visit to the Museum will reveal the vestiges of the once grand Victorian building. We’ll explore the Carriage House. Finally we’ll stroll the property along old carriage trails, up Windmill Hill, and down the Lake Trail to the ruins of the White’s noisy neighbor, the icehouse. Wear comfortable shoes and bring a bottle of water. Space is limited, so register early! Please register through the Historical Society or White Memorial.
