Brief History Minimize

The City of Litchfield is known for its unique history in this rich and productive farming area of Michigan. The area's first inhabitants were the Pottawattamie Indians. The Pottawattamie Indians who roamed the countryside when the settlers first arrived were the Leathernose family of  the Baw Beese tribe. Settlers eventually moved to this area from eastern portions of the United States. The City first went by the name of Columbus but was changed to Litchfield in 1837. The first school in Litchfield Township was also established in 1837. The Village of Litchfield was incorporated in 1877 and became self-supporting through the system of licenses and taxes. Litchfield incorporated as a City in 1970 with Governor William G. Milliken approving the Proposed Charter on July 9th, and the first City Council Meeting held August 10th.  The current population of Litchfield is 1,369 from the 2010 census figures.
