Andrew Bushnell discovered Litchfield in 1833. He left the property and came back later to build a cabin next to Jerry Cevela's home on Marshall St. In 1834 a mail route was established between Jonesville and Marshall, running through Litchfield. Postage was .25 cents for letters going 150 miles or more. Parker Dresser built their first home and established the first tavern. A store and a soap factory were also built.
