Lilac Hedges Collection

The Lilac Hedges Collection (2011-08-0) is a collection of greeting cards, original artwork, and other items pertaining to the former Lilac Hedges greeting card company of Litchfield, Connecticut. The card company was founded by Ralph P. Hinchman III, and was based in two buildings in Litchfield, a house and a barn, that originally belonged to the historic Echo Farms. The property was renamed “Lilac Hedges” by Ralph P. Hinchman III’s relatives, and the company was named after the property. The company appears to have done business in the 1950’s and 60’s. Hinchman started making greeting cards by making Christmas cards for neighbors, friends, and family which featured the person’s house on the card. The cards were created by various artists including Jac Venza, Hilary Knight, Donn Sheets, Henry Bowman, Hinchman himself, and various other artists including Andy Warhol who designed several cards.
