The population of Littleton Maine today is around 1068 folks.
The town like most of Northern Maine started out as a land grant to a Southern New England school sold off to fund the education in Massachusetts. Littleton’s north half belonged to Framingham Academy, the township’s south half controlled by Williams College.
The laying it all out on paper in Littleton started in 1800-1801 and development of this rich farming community began after that.
The elevation of the town is 472′ and GPS coordinates latitude and longitude (46.23088,-67.84113).
But before paved department of transportation Maine roads were steamed with new hot top to zip along, it took a long time.
There are stories about wayward travelers loosing their way and wandering over into Canada. With kind souls in Woodstock New Brunswick nursing the tired, hungry and bug bitten discouraged Boston area hikers back to health.
There was no GPS to punch in and sit back, waiting for the New Zealand like voice do all the work in early days settling Northern Maine.

Some Maine towns we can brag up hunting, fishing, all the variety of trees and some abandoned farm fields to explore. But they don’t have lakes, there is nothing much more than a road or two and wildlife.

I learned how to swim in Cary Lake that has quite an undertow out in the middle.
It lies north of the snow sled club Ward log home clubhouse on the Wiley Road.
The local Maine potato farms offer activity to watch and learn or to pitch in for a salary.
They earned spending money, funds for clothes they wanted from local farmers like Leslie and Greg Schools in Littleton and Amy and Danny Corey’s operation in Monticello.
