Littleton Travel Guide


One of northern New Hampshire's largest towns (this isn't saying much, mind you) is on a granite shelf along the Ammonoosuc River, whose swift current and drop of 235 feet enabled the community to flourish as a mill center in its early days. The railroad came through some time later, and Littleton grew into the region's commercial hub. In the minds of many, it's more a place to stock up on supplies than a real destination itself, but few communities have worked harder at revitalization. Intriguing shops and eateries line Main Street, whose tidy 19th- and early-20th-century buildings suggest a set in a Jimmy Stewart movie.
