The Doors of Litchfield, Connecticut

The village greens, white colonial houses, and spired churches of the small towns of rural Connecticut exude vintage New England charm. About an hour from Hartford in the northwest corner of the state, the upscale town of Litchfield has become a favorite weekend getaway spot for those seeking peaceful downtime in the country. Please enjoy a peek at the doors and architecture of this lovely town.

The charm of this town is evident in the diverse architectural styles of the buildings and doors. The exterior door of this craft gallery nicely blends rustic elements with classic elegant colonial style.

    What a lovely collection – thanks for sharing these. I was pretty sure the first one was going to be my fave but when I scrolled down and saw that Federal Style #3… 🙂

  2. I like them all, but I’m drawn to the first one and the arched gate door. Do the lovely weathered doors close over the new ones in that first shot, like shutters for a door?

    1. Thank you! These doors were my favorites too. I’m not positive, but it did look like the rustic doors could be closed. It would make sense with the cold winters in CT.
