New Hampshire's most welcoming attraction

is the centerpiece of historic downtown as

an ambassador of cheer and community spirit for residents and visitors alike.


Today, visitors and passers-by make it a point to return her "welcome wave".

Admirers come not only to take a keepsake photo, but to rub Pollyanna's

bronze hightop shoe for luck and gladness. Pollyanna can be the start to over

25 points of interest and other delights along Main Street.


Littleton's jubilant bronze sculpture tributes hometown author,

Eleanor H. Porter (1868 – 1920) best remembered as the creator of the world's

most optimistic character, Pollyanna, 1913.

Eleanor Hodgman Porter’s early residence was in Littleton,

and not so far from the Library front lawn…where fittingly Pollyanna,

Littleton’s sculpture presides in an artistic and symbolic place “welcoming residents and visitors.”
