The Litchfield Historical Society is pleased to announce that Ericson Insurance Advisors will once again sponsor free admission for all to the Litchfield History Museum and the Tapping Reeve House & Law School. We invite members of the community and visitors to participate in our shared history and celebrate the stories that helped make Litchfield the town we know and love. The Museums open for the season on Saturday, April 22 and will be on view through Sunday, November 26. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, 1 to 5 p.m.
Ericson Insurance Advisors, a premier Litchfield County-based provider of insurance solutions and independent advice to both businesses and families, sponsored free admission in 2016 and has committed to doing so for the 2017 season.

The Litchfield History Museum will feature a new exhibition, Thoughts, Words, and Deeds: Exploring the Litchfield Female Academy, which explores Miss Sarah Pierce’s school, the role it played in shaping later educational, social, and economic opportunities for women in the United States and highlights newly discovered information about the students and their legacies. Also on view will be America’s Pastimes: Sports and Recreation in Litchfield, which highlights the role of sports and recreation in town, and showcases the stories and experiences of Litchfield residents.
