On March 31 the Litchfield Historical Society is offering a live session on Facebook at 10:30 a.m. called, “Coffee with a Curator.” The Litchfield Historical Society is excited to bring the museum into your home with Coffee with a Curator. Sit down with a cup of coffee and have one of our curators share items from our artifact collections and archives.
The Series continues on Friday, April 3 at 1 p.m. with a session called What is That – A History Museum! This program will uncover a history mystery! From unusual objects to strange stories, participants will be taking a close look at the weird and wonderful things in the Society’s collection to see if you can solve the history mystery!
On April 7 at 10:30 a.m. get ready to once again sit with the Society’s Curator with a cuppa! On Tuesday, April 7th at 10:30, Archivist Linda Hocking will be teaching viewers how to read historical documents. Participants will learn about trends and changes in penmanship, the process of transcribing documents, and tips on how to decipher hard to read handwriting.
