Celebrating East Litchfield



On Tuesday evening, August 5th, at the East Litchfield Fire Company, the East Litchfield community hosted the unveiling of Jesse Richard's artwork depicting the depot area of East Litchfield Village in 1880.

Jesse Richard, artist and former proprietor of Walnut Hill Greenhouse, spent last winter creating this amazing image.

Daniel Keefe, the historian of East Litchfield, donated East Litchfield chestnut wood that came out of his 1780 home for the frame and William Thibodeau donated his time to craft the frame.
 
Jesse talked about the history of the area and each building in the image. The artwork will permanently hang in the firehouse.
