The history of Littleton dates back to the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush. Gold seekers, merchants, and farmers flocked to the new community. An engineer from New Hampshire, Richard Sullivan Little make his way west to work on irrigation systems. He fell in love with the area and soon brought out his wife, Angeline in 1862. The community grew greatly because of the Little’s and their neighbor’s efforts. By 1890, the community had grown to 245 people, which prompted the residents to vote to incorporate the Town of Littleton.
Littleton is a southern suburb of Denver, and on the west side of I-25, making it a
convenient proximity to the mountains.
