The Littleton Museum offers visitors a unique link between Littleton’s past and present. Located on 40 acres adjacent to Ketring Lake, it encompasses three exhibition galleries, a children’s interactive gallery, research center, lecture hall, and two 19th-century living history farm sites.
The 1860s homestead farm and the 1890s turn-of-the-century urban farm represent how people lived and worked during the early years in Littleton and the South Platte Valley.
Museum staff and volunteers dressed in period-appropriate costumes, work on the farm sites, run the working blacksmith shop, and teach in Littleton’s first one-room school house, offering a “living history’ perspective to the museum visitor.
The permanent gallery exhibits a comprehensive historical look at Littleton from pre-history to the present through graphics, photography, and artifacts from the museum’s collections.
