Bricker Pavers with names engraged


In front of the museum, a patio has been constructed of brick pavers to honor those associated with Litchfield, the Litchfield Museum, and area visitors. It’s a wonderful to make a permanent memorial to those who have made a valuable contribution to the Litchfield community. Brick pavers can be purchased here in honor of, in memory of, or in recognition of any individual for a tax deductible contribution of as little as $66. Pavers are available in three sizes. Visit the Museum or download a form HERE.


The museum is fully staffed by volunteers who believe in the value of keeping history alive for future generations and visitors to our community. If you would like to become a volunteer, you can call us at (217) 324-3510, use our Contact Form, or visit our friendly staff at the museum. We hope to see you become a part of our friendly group of Litchfield enthusiasts!
