Search the Collection Online!
The Litchfield Historical Society is pleased to announce the launch of Collection Space, a new online searchable database that makes information about items held in the museum collection visible to the public. Only a small percentage of the museum’s rich collection can be on display in the museum at one time, but now even objects in storage are visable online! Find clothing, furniture, needlework, paintings, prints, drawings, household objects, and more. This 6,000 item database represents a third of our total collection, so please be sure to check back in often! Staff is adding new records and additional information every day. If you have any questions, contact the Curator of Collections at 860-567-4501 or firstname.lastname@example.org
