Historic Post Office in Littleton, CO accepted to National Register of Historic Places


Littleton Independent: Littleton’s 70-year-old post office at 5735 S. Prince St. will be celebrated from 1 to 3 p.m. on Nov. 9, and Historic Littleton Inc. is coordinating with the Littleton Post Office staff by inviting the community to join in.

Why? Because the 1939 red brick building has been nominated and accepted for the National Register of Historic Places and the Colorado State Register of Historic Properties — a special honor. Dedication and speakers are scheduled for 2 p.m., tours of the building will be available and refreshments are planned.
