I worked in Littleton from 75-78 and would visit the bookstore occasionlly, where there was an employee named Rusty. I walked in the store in 93, not having been there in 15 years. My appearance had changed somewhat, of course from bearded to clean shaven etc. When Rusty saw me he spoke first, saying without pause, "Gee you haven't been in here in a long time" .

Very few places on Earth where that could happen.

Pretty neat, isn't it The music store, jewelry store, diner staff and Alburritos (spelling!) are the same way - even at the Eastgate there's one gal who remembered us after about a year.....

Hi I was born in Littleton and my grandparents still live there. My Parents grew up there. I love going to Littleton to visit. It is always so peaceful. My favorite places are the Village Book store (I used to beg my grandparents to take me and my brother there), and Bishops ice cream parlor.

The place to eat in Littleton is The Topic of The Town. Great food, great prices and great people who work there!!! They remember your name and even what you order(if you're a regular)! We moved here four years ago and have seen so many changes-a lot of growth. Since we've been here Home Depot, Lowes, Hampton Inn, Applebees, 99 Steak House,and Walgreens have all been added to town. There's "rush minute" every afternoon downtown around 4pm. In the summer it's all day. The bookstore is absolutely terrific!! Chutters is a really neat place, too. But, there is a new element that seems to be moving in and I see a lot of changes ahead for the town. Not necessarily building changes but attitude and safety changes. Hope I'm wrong. Littleton offers low income housing and a lot of people take advantage of that. They seem to come from all over. Housing prices have jumped quite a bit since we got here, too. We were pleasantly surprised to see homes with 3 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths, liv, kit, dining, and extra room for low 100,000's. Now those prices are in the 200,000's. Taxes are going up, too. But, it's the same in the surrounding towns except maybe Lisbon and Monroe. It's been months since anyone has read this thread but I'm new to it so I thought I'd post. Have a nice day!

Hi calicocutie - You're right - The Topic of the Town does have good food! I had forgotten about that as well! We've been here a little over a year and have seen some changes, too. We bought a house in February for under 200K, so we were lucky...and it didn't need any work done on it! Funny you should mention taxes - we got our tax bill the other day and it was actually less than what we were told it would be, which surprised me, I figured if anything, it would be higher! I've heard rumors about a couple of new developments either going in or are in the planning stages to go in, but I don't know if that's true or not. So far I haven't seen/experienced much of an attitude/safety change, but then again, we haven't been up here as long as you have. We were in the music store the other day and I was going to go to Chutters as well, but then got side-tracked and never did go in, which is probably a good thing. Have a good one!

Wink Sometimes you have to "settle" for an extra bedroom you don't actually need

I recommend NNEREN for your RE search needs.


Seriously, 1-bedroom houses are not easy to find -- they are rare, perceived as having poor resale value. Plenty of 1BR apartments, even in Littleton.
