Litchfield Park Historical Society

Where the Past Comes Alive

Welcome!    LPHS Logo

Litchfield Park is an oasis in the desert with old growth trees and streets lined in alternating orange and palm trees.

The historic downtown commercial center with locally owned restaurants and businesses set Litchfield Park apart from the surrounding communities with a sense of time and place that is unique. The Wigwam, a West Valley icon since the 1930s, has three 18-hole golf courses and lush grounds that reflect the city’s verdant environment.

Each neighborhood has a park as well as a pathway system that connects them. Families can travel from one neighborhood to another walking or on bikes with out having to be in the street.

The Litchfield Park Historical Society was founded in March 2001 to collect, maintain and share the history of this distinctive community. Its Museum provides a permanent location where residents and visitors alike can learn about the unique history of Litchfield Park and surrounding communities.
