Letter to the editor: Expand Littleton's historic district

Posted

On Oct, 26, an important proposal will come before the city council to expand Littleton’s Main Street Historic District.

I was part of the council that approved the current Main Street Historic District. Expanding the district to include Alamo between Rapp and South Rio Grande streets will greatly strengthen the historic district and allow residents and visitors alike to understand that it was part of the original townsite established by Richard Little in 1872.

Buildings along Alamo are similar in historic significance to buildings on Main Street and date back to 1884, including Littleton Creamery (1884), the Sanford House (1900), the Leach House (1889) and the Littleton Post Office. 

I hope citizens who are interested in this important addition to Littleton’s historic district will make their wishes known to the council.

Susan Thornton, former mayor

Littleton
