Littleton in Grafton County, New Hampshire — The American Northeast (New England)
On June 8, 1909, with elaborate pageantry, citizens celebrated the dedication of this restrained example of Beaux Arts Classicism. Unique among Main Street’s surviving structures are the imposing paired pilasters, rusticated masonry and parapet roof. The symmetrical edifice arose on the site of the Union House, the town’s tavern and inn. Erected by the Little Masonic Temple Building Association to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the chartering of the Burns Lodge of Masons, it generously hosts related fraternal organizations and community endeavors.
