The 2019 Litchfield Open House & Garden Tour is The Litchfield Aid’s 67th House Tour and will feature ten notable homes and gardens, and additional historic sites highlighting Litchfield’s 300 years of history and architecture. All of the homes, gardens and locations of interest are within walking distance to the center of town and Litchfield’s famous historic district.
The tour will guide guests through three centuries of architecture from a 1685 Saltbox to a 1954 Marcel Breuer mid-century modern. Several of the featured homes have never been opened to the public.
The July 12th Preview Party will be held at the extraordinary Ozias Seymour Homestead which has been a grand presence on South Street since 1807. Touring the Seymour House tells the tale of Litchfield’s history, life, politics and architecture over two hundred years. Sumptuous food and spirits will be complimented by jazz performances by JINQS and the Nutmeg Ballet Dancers throughout the evening.
