On the southeast end is a Sunoco gas station, the Fire Station, the Town Hall, and the Litchfield Historical Society and Museum. Southwest of the circle is the United Church of Christ Congregational, Tonio's Pizza, Old Schoolhouse Catering, Glenn's Welding, and Play 'n Grow Child Care. Litchfield Radio, Subway, A Scoop on the Circle (an ice cream shop), Heberlein's General Store, and Whitehead Meats lie northwest of the circle. Amish ride for miles to sell their wares on the circle. A park makes up the interior of the traffic circle, the main attraction being a white gazebo. Summers in the circle gazebo the Litchfield Town Band conducts concerts, various organizations hold ice cream socials, and local political leaders orate. In the winter, a Christmas tree is placed in the gazebo and decorated.
