Incorporated in 1890, Littleton is the fourth oldest city in the Greater Denver Metro Area. Littleton boasts a population of more than 43,000 living in an area just shy of 14 square miles and spans Arapahoe, Jefferson and Douglas counties. Littleton has a rich history dating back as far as the Colorado Gold Rush of 1859, which not only brought a flood of gold seekers to the area, but also farmers, merchants and business men hoping to find their own fortunes by providing goods and services to the prospectors. Today that entrepreneurial spirit is still alive in Littleton with roughly 7.4% of the population being self-employed compared to the national average of just 6.6%. Several of Colorado’s biggest employers including Lockheed Martin and CenturyLink are also located in Littleton, helping to make this smaller city one of Colorado’s biggest economies.
