Litchfield Museum and Route 66 Welcome Center
The Litchfield Museum and Route 66 Welcome Center is dedicated to preserving the city's history, which includes its role on the historic Route 66 highway that stretches all the way to the west coast. Local citizens gathered together in 2011 with the initial goal of publishing a book of old Litchfield postcards. The idea of a museum evolved from this initial idea and in 2012 the museum officially became a non-profit organization. Funds were raised to build the museum and it opened in 2013.
