Litchfield at 300

November’s “Community Conversations” will cover the topic of Immigration in Litchfield. From the first migrants from Hartford and Windsor in the 18th Century, Litchfield has become home to people of varied heritage.

Our town. Our history. Our Anniversary.
Celebrating 300 years of Litchfield’s history

In honor of the 300th Anniversary of the town of Litchfield, we are celebrating throughout the year with a new exhibit, community days, and special programming highlighting the town’s history from 1719 to 2019. Please join us this year for all that is happening!

Check our Calendar of Events for updated info or follow us on Facebook.

The new exhibit Sold, Made, & Grown in Litchfield showcases the history of commerce, industry, and agriculture in the town of Litchfield. Focusing on the twentieth century to the present, Sold, Made, & Grown will examine the continued connection between Litchfield businesses and the formation of community space, identity, and memory. The exhibition will include business signs, historic photographs, and objects sold, made, and grown in Litchfield.

Join us for the opening on Friday, April 12 at 6 p.m.!
