The city of Littleton’s history dates back to the 1859 Pike’s Peak Gold Rush, which brought not only gold seekers, but merchants and farmers to the community.

Richard Sullivan Little was an engineer from New Hampshire who made his way out West to work on irrigation systems. Little soon decided to settle in the area at present day Littleton and brought his wife Angeline out from the East in 1862. The Littles, along with many neighbors, built the Rough and Ready Flour Mill in 1867, which provided a solid economic base in the community.

By 1890, the community had grown to 245 people and the residents voted to incorporate the Town of Littleton. When Littleton celebrated its centennial in 1990, its population had grown to 33,661. By 2014 the population of Littleton was 44,669. In 2015 the city celebrated the 125th anniversary of its founding.

With a little bit of everything for everyone, Littleton is quite the desirable area for new residents.
