Litchfield Historical Society

Why support the project?

With the help of Landscape Architect Lauren Richardson, the Society has re-imagined the six acre Tapping Reeve site, not as a strict interpretation of a time period, but rather as a community resource with landscape elements that would have been found on the site, and in Litchfield, from the 18th to the 20th centuries. The project will use elements of the historic landscape as an educational tool and includes a children’s garden, education pavilion, small orchard, a chestnut grove, a wet meadow, stone walls and traditional fencing. The Society has designed the project to provide the community and visitors with opportunities for learning, relaxation and reflection.
