Fodor's Expert Review Litchfield History Museum

Litchfield Museum/Gallery

In this well-regarded museum, seven neatly organized galleries highlight family life and work during the 50 years following the American Revolution. The extensive reference library has information about the town's historic buildings, including the Sheldon Tavern, where George Washington slept on several occasions, and the Litchfield Female Academy, where in the late 1700s Sarah Pierce taught girls not only sewing and deportment but also mathematics and history.
