Littleton Post Office Celebrating 80 Years of History

The Littleton Post office is celebrating 80 years serving Littleton at its 5753 S. Prince Street location with the designation on two historic registers.  Celebrations took place on November 9, 2019, where Historic Littleton Inc., the United States Postal Service, the Historic Preservation Board, and the City of Littleton celebrated the designation of the Littleton Post Office on the National Register of Historic Places and the Colorado State Register of Historic Properties.

The designation of the building to the National Register contributes significantly to the character of Downtown Littleton’s historic district. This multi-year project began in 2016 with listing finally occurring in April of 2019. The celebration included the dedication of the National Register plaque on the building, speakers, and behind-the-scenes tours of the postal operations.
