Litchfield History Museum

The Litchfield History Museum exhibits the evolution of Litchfield, CT from its settlement in 1719 to today. Through changing exhibits, artifacts and archives, as well as hands-on areas, visitors can explore the diverse history of the town. Litchfield was a bustling commercial,political, and educational center and is a case study for the evolution of New England towns following the Revolutionary War. The town’s history includes that of the center village, Bantam, East Litchfield, Milton, Northfield, and pre-1850s Morris. The Historical Society’s artifacts and archives document all areas. The exhibits are on the first floor of the Noyes Memorial Building.

The lower level is home to the Helga J. Ingraham Memorial Library.
