Litchfield


On a beautiful day, I drove out to Litchfield, a postcard-pretty town an hour west of Hartford.
Within half a mile of the Litchfield Green, there are more beautiful buildings than I can show.


This is the historical society.  It was closed, so I couldn't see the exhibits.


This handsome Victorian home is on a steep road into town.


Eighteenth century houses are almost a dime a dozen in Litchfield.


This might be my favorite, another Victorian building.


And a stone Episcopal church is five or six buildings off the green.

Victorian homes are always so Impressive and the owners usually take great pride in their appearances.

What a beautiful town! The trees and surrounding green seems to enhance everything this time of year.
