Take a Walk Around Litchfield August 22 @ 10 a.m.

There is nothing more relaxing than strolling the village green and walking in the historic borough of Litchfield on a warm summer day. The houses and town center is so well preserved it is like stepping back in time.

The Litchfield Historical Society will be making this walk much more interesting on Saturday, August 22 at 10 am with a narrated themed walking tour with a staff member of the Historical Society. The theme for Saturday, August 22 is William Grimes. Participants will explore Connecticut’s complicated history with slavery through the life of William Grimes, a man who escaped slavery in Georgia and found work in Litchfield. Walking tours last approximately 1 hour. Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring a bottle of water.

Space is limited! Visitors are required to wear a mask at all times. In the event of rain or inclement weather, the program will not be held. To register click here.
