Situated on the edge of the White Mountains, bounded on the northwest by the Connecticut River, Littleton is a town in Grafton County, New Hampshire. Its primary settlement area is centered around the intersection of US Route 302 and NH Route 116, along the Ammonoosuc River. The community was known as Chiswick (cheese farm) when it was first settled in 1769, it was part of Lisbon until 1770, when it was granted as Apthorp, after George Apthorp, the primary grantee. Later, the land was passed on to the Apthorp family's associates, headed by Colonel Moses Little, and was renamed in his honor upon its incorporation as the Town of Littleton in 1784, the year that New Hampshire became a state. Hugh Gallen, 74th governor of New Hampshire, was a resident of Littleton.
