Incorporated in 1877, Littleton encompasses approximately a square mile around the traffic light at Mosby Avenue & US Highway 158. We are nestled between Halifax and Warren Counties, about midway between I-85 and I-95, just below the Virginia border. The town was named for William Little who was a state senator when the town was founded, and he was also the first Postmaster of Littleton. The original post office was “Person’s Ordinary” and is still standing in its original location on Warren St.
We have been known as “Little People Town,” or “The Little Town with the Big Heart,” or “Gateway to Beautiful Lake Gaston.” Whatever we’re called, we invite you to live here, open a business here, or come visit any time!
