The Litchfield Museum and Route 66 Welcome Center has an opportunity and obligation to record the experiences we are going through to help future generations understand what it was like in the Litchfield area during the COVID-19 crisis.
As the official keeper of Litchfield area history, we want to collect and keep your stories about what you experience during this time. We also want to collect original, representative items created specifically for the local COVID-19 response, including, but not limited to, signs, protective health devices, social distancing innovations, photographs, and anything that helps tell the story of these trying times. We are not collecting these items yet, as the crisis is not yet over, but we'd like you to remember to hang onto physical items pertaining to these times and begin documenting your experiences.
Once the precautions and restrictions are over and the museum is again open, we urge you to drop these items by the museum. Thank you, and please be safe and healthy.
