About us


The Littleton School District SAU#84 encompasses the town of Littleton, NH. The population was 5,845 at the 2000 census. The primary settlement in town, where over 75% of the population resides, is defined as the Littleton census-designated place (CDP), and is in the vicinity of the intersection of U.S. Route 302 with New Hampshire Route 116, along the Ammonoosuc River.

Situated at the western edge of the White Mountains, Littleton is bounded on the northwest by the Connecticut River. The Town of Littleton has long been the hub of the Northern Grafton County region. Like many New England towns, it is set close to a river, the Ammonoosuc, which emanates from the upper slopes of Mount Washington and falls 235 feet through Littleton in a series of rapids. Interstate 93 also runs through Littleton, bringing with it a steady stream of tourists, eager to enjoy the natural environment. Littleton is home to many businesses and factories. The industrial park, which continues to grow, is home to Tender Corporation, Littleton Coin Company, Frametone Connector Incorporated, and over a dozen other companies. Littleton is the shopping, services, and manufacturing center of the region with recent additions of a Wal-Mart, Home Depot, Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse, Staples, Tractor Supply Company and Sears. It is home to dozens of stores and restaurants, several banks, a state-of-the-art hospital, a variety of churches, and a complete array of social services.

Littleton was named in the book The 100 Best Small Towns in America by Norm Crampton as the 9th best small town in America in 1994 and the 7th best small town in America in 1995.   Littleton was chosen as one of three original New Hampshire communities to take part in the National Main Street Program. This program has been on-going for the past eight years and continues today.
