Gold Rush History

<p>Littleton is a city with an intriguing history. Originally founded during the Pike's Peak Gold Rush of 1859, historic Littleton was home to a few unsavory characters.

Alferd Packer, alleged cannibal, has been the subject of books, films, songs, and has even inspired a death metal band.
