The Exhibit

As part of the town’s 300th Anniversary celebration, Sold, Made, & Grown in Litchfield examines some of the local businesses that helped shape Litchfield’s history, the town’s unique character, and the community’s shared memories. The exhibit showcases only a fraction of the many stores, industries, and farms that are part of this story. We invite you to share your memories and reflect on the role of local businesses in your community.



As places where residents create shared experiences, stores play an essential role in how people communicate both their town’s history and their own memories.


Industries created jobs for town residents and attracted new workers and families to Litchfield. Today, the renewed use of these spaces as workshops and art studios points to the town's
enduring creative spirit.



Whether large or small, Litchfield’s farms have generated jobs, provided food for local residents, and served as sources of community pride.
