was originally “Little’s Town” and was a rail stop on both the Santa Fe and Denver & Rio Grande Railroads. Littleton began as a farm community in the 1860s, focused on growing food for the rush of miners headed for the gold fields. The community incorporated in 1890, and had an active city government and a volunteer fire department.
By the turn of the century, Littleton Colorado was a well-established community with many homes, stores and churches. It is our real small town feel in south Denver and every year features wonderful community events, such as Western Welcome Week, and the Candlelight Walk. Orchard road went east to the “orchards” and there were stock yards and other agricultural roots in this now bedroom community of Denver.
Homes can range in price from $150,000 up to a high well over $3,000,000. Unique to this area are the Polo Reserve which is a residential community built around active polo fields and where regular polo matches are held. Gated communities, luxury homes and retirement homes can also be found through property searches.
