Language of Materials
In its early days of collecting, the Historical Society stored and catalogued photographs separately from other materials. Any collections of papers or artifacts that may have been donated at the same time were not kept together. Photographs are also found in a number of manuscript collections as it is no longer common practice to separate them from collections of papers. Additions are no longer made to this collection.
Method of Acquisition
This collection was assembled by the Litchfield Historical Society from a variety of donations. Donor and acquisitions information varies from one photo to the next. Please contact staff if you wish to know additional acquisition details about specific items.
