At a ceremony in Manchester, NH on October 17, 2012, the Littleton Community Center was named to the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance’s 2012 Seven to Save list as one of the current group of endangered historic structures in New Hampshire.
A grand Victorian house and carriage barn in downtown Littleton, the Community House has served as a community center since just after World War I. Its elegant period interiors are largely intact, but it needs help with a large backlog of maintenance issues to retain its status as a popular community gathering place.

“We were delighted to receive this designation at this time,” said board president Roxanne Bowker, who attended the announcement event with board member Mary Edick, former board member Ron Bolt and Community Center hostess Wendy Clark, and Ruth Taylor, who has been assisting the Center with its preservation planning.
Bowker added, “We have learned that what makes these old Queen Anne style homes so beautiful and attractive also makes them challenging to care for. The Seven to Save status gives us a boost in public awareness and potential for finding the resources to preserve the buildings for the next generations of Littleton residents.”
