The Litchfield Open House & Garden


The Litchfield Aid of the Connecticut Junior Republic (CJR) will hold a historic Open House & Garden Tour on July 12 and 13, 2019, in celebration of the Town of Litchfield's tercentennial.  Consisting of two distinct rain or shine events—a Preview Tour from 4:30 to 7:30 PM, followed by a cocktail party from 7:00 to 9:00 PM, on Friday, July 12, and the Litchfield Open House & Garden Tour on Saturday, July 13 from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM—The Aid's 2019 benefit will feature an informative and dynamic one-mile walking tour within the Borough of Litchfield, a National Historic Landmark District.  Nine houses dating from the 17th to 20th centuries and one additional garden will represent the town's architectural history.

Visitors may enjoy lunch at the Connecticut Junior Republic for $10.00 from 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM.  A choice of a seafood salad or smoked turkey and Swiss cheese sandwich plate, including pasta salad, brownie, and iced tea, will be served by CJR students.  

All proceeds from The Litchfield Aid's 67th Open House & Garden Tour will benefit the Connecticut Junior Republic.
