Welcome to Littleton. Littleton is a home rule municipality. This is a suburb of Denver and Aurora metropolitan area. This city was developed in the 1800s due to Pike's Peak gold rush. Gold seekers and merchants were brought to this area in order to mine for gold. Visiting the mining museums may be a way to spend a day. The Colorado school for the blind is here. The Denver seminary is in the town of Littleton.

The Columbine 1999 school massacre occurred in nearby Columbine. Often Littleton is noted as the town for the high school massacre. Actually, the event took place in Columbine. The tragedy is often a reminder of how fragile a situation can be. The law enforcement teams and counseling teams of Littleton and the surrounding towns have increased their forces. There is more awareness of high school counseling problems now, and programs are in place to deal with such issues.
