About LittletonPrior to the Civil War Littleton was a station on the branch of the Underground Railroad that led northward to Vermont and Canada. It is now better known as a resort center and stopover for travelers bound for the White Mountains.
The Ammonoosuc River's 235-foot descent through Littleton was the catalyst for the city's transformation into a manufacturing and commercial center. The job of energy production now falls to Moore Station, a hydroelectric plant on the Connecticut River, 8 miles west on SR 18. One of New England's largest such projects, it impounds Moore Reservoir.
