Litchfield was founded in 1853, and since that time, the city has prospered in all areas that collectively make an enjoyable, prosperous place to live and work - churches, school system, healthcare services, housing, business, industry and recreation.
Our community is the shopping and employment hub of Montgomery County and the eastern half of Macoupin County. Our development is the envy of the immediate area, with a viable, competitive retail area that attracts visitors from a 30 to 40-mile radius for shopping and dining. The city also offers many opportunities for recreation and fun as well. We’re proud of all these accomplishments, and extend a warm welcome to you and your family. Come visit, and discover the hidden treasures of Litchfield!
