Litchfield’s name origins are from three English brothers named Electus Darwin Litchfield (1817–1888), Egbert E. Litchfield (dates unknown) and Edwin Clark Litchfield (1815–1885).
The Litchfields were the contractors/investors by whom the railroad line from St. Paul to St. Cloud was built in 1862 to 1864. Later, they provided the means for building a more southern line through Meeker County to Breckenridge. Electus, showing his business sense, had his wife in London donate grants of $2000 each to various religious sects in town to build churches.
