The mission of the Litchfield Historical Society is to illuminate the rich and nationally-significant history of Litchfield, enabling each of us to construct meaning from the past for the present and future.


The Litchfield Historical Society brings people together to discover, experience, and share the many diverse stories that have made our community a distinctive place, now and over time. We value the fact that every individual adds something to the story of Litchfield and recognize that each of those stories is important to our collective understanding of our community.
