Litchfield County, Connecticut

About Litchfield County

Litchfield County is a county located in the northwestern corner of the U.S. state of Connecticut. Litchfield County has the lowest population density of any county in Connecticut and is geographically the state’s largest county. As of the 2010 United States Census, the population was 189,927. It is part of the New York-Newark-Bridgeport Combined Statistical Area.

As is the case with all eight counties in Connecticut, there is no county government; there is no county seat: in Connecticut, each town is responsible for all local services such as schools, snow removal, sewers, fire department and police departments. However, in some cases in rural areas, adjoining towns may agree to jointly provide services or even establish a joint school system.

Geography

According to the 2000 census, the county has a total area of 944.57 square miles (2,446.4 km2), of which 919.92 square miles (2,382.6 km2) (or 97.39%) is land and 24.65 square miles (63.8 km2) (or 2.61%) is water.[3] Litchfield County is roughly contiguous with the portion of the Appalachian Mountains range known as the Berkshire Mountains (sometimes locally, this area is called the Litchfield Hills).
