Photos from Litchfield’s Court House

The Litchfield Court House ceased operations in August 2017 after operating in town since the 1750s and in the same building since it was constructed after the fire of 1886. The Greater Litchfield Preservation Trust, which recently purchased the building, held an open house for a glimpse inside the historic structure.

  1. Thanks Peter.

    So many people at the open house expressed a sense of ownership — “this building belongs to all of us — the citizens of Litchfield.”

    *And indeed it does !!!!*

  2. Sent from my iPhone Hello, I just want to let you know how much I enjoy the Hidden in Plain Sight emails. It’s always a nice surprise to find one among all the rubbish in my inbox. Thanks, Ann Clifford
