Littleton's economic community has its roots in the Littleton Grist Mill and saw mill that Solomon Mann opened for business in 1798. As other buildings were added, the mill complex eventually became the village of Littleton and the nucleus of its industry. The energy to power the mills was supplied by the Ammonoosuc River with the aid of a dam.Although the dam no longer exists, the original grist mill still stands and is restored to its original appearance
