Downtown and Historic Main Street
One of the last classic Main Streets in New England, downtown Littleton is a vibrant center of commerce in a town nestled along the banks of the mighty Ammonoosuc River, close by the picturesque White Mountains of northern New Hampshire.

Downtown parade celebrating American Main Street Award
|Littleton, New Hampshire|
Downtown offers a nice variety of restaurants, an historic inn, a motel, a 100-year old Opera House, dozens of specialty shops and numerous services, including a majestic post office, several local banks, a working gristmill, the world’s longest candy counter (No kidding! It’s in the Guinness Book!), and a sculpture of the original “glad girl” herself: Pollyanna.
Much of the credit for the appearance and vitality of downtown Littleton goes to the dedicated volunteers of Littleton Main Street, Inc. By encouraging business and property owners to pay attention to the physical appearance of their businesses, fostering good customer service, and providing Main Street business with the tools to improve their marketing, Littleton Main Street has helped create a climate of hope and success.
A certified National Main Street Community since 1997, Littleton
has twice been a finalist in the Great American Main Street Award
competition sponsored by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
Using the National Main Street Four-Point Approach©,
Littleton has managed to lower the retail vacancy rate to 2% (after
a high of 20% in 1992).
Volunteers are routinely offered opportunities for free training in the work of these committees through LMSI’s affiliation as a N.H. Main Street Community.
