The Littleton Community Center has had a very busy year. You couldn’t help but notice the Eastman House (aka the Community House) received a much-needed facelift. Thanks to the persistence of Littleton Millworks owner Mitch Greaves many exterior renovations were completed, including restored original siding in beautiful historic colors of green, gold and burgundy. Inside, a new boiler was installed which will cut energy costs by twenty-five percent. Energy efficient lighting throughout the house will also help keep our operating costs as low as possible.
The Board of Directors worked diligently throughout the spring and summer on a Strategic Plan to guide us into the future. A new vision and mission were defined as well as three strategic goals focused on building sustainability, increasing awareness, and strengthening programming.
The LCC had over 7,000 visits from residents attending events and meetings at the Eastman House this year. Some of our most notable events were a night of Civil War era music, monthly Book Club meetings, Art History Tours during the Art Festival, and of course, our famous Holiday Open House.
Lastly, we have big plans for next year, including more events such as snowman contests, lawn parties, international food nights and more historic themed tours. Look for a reconfigured “info booth” highlighting Littleton’s history. And we will continue to focus on renovating and repairing the property… top on the list is developing a Historic Structures Report for the “Carriage House Annex” which will create a plan for how to properly revitalize this one-of-a-kind Queen Anne style barn.
