The Town of Litchfield, Maine welcomes you! Litchfield is located 16 miles southwest of Augusta in southern Kennebec County, within reasonable commuting distance of Augusta, Brunswick, and Lewiston-Auburn. We are a rural community situated on and around the Tacoma Lakes, with a good mix of commuters, farmers, businessmen, vacation property owners, and retirees. Our current population is approximately 3,586 (from the 2020 census). You may find this indexed map of our town helpful:  Town of Litchfield Map.

Early settlement of Litchfield began before the Revolutionary War and occurred around our ponds, lakes, and streams. The town was first organized in 1793 as a political entity called Smithfield Plantation, and in 1795 successfully petitioned the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to become incorporated as the Town of Litchfield.

You can read more of Litchfield’s history beginning on page 5 of our Comprehensive Plan. And our Historical Society has a wonderful site, including records archives, here.
