Parker’s Marketplace in Littleton, New Hampshire

As part of our Building History series, we take a look at the Parker’s Marketplace located in Littleton, New Hampshire:

“Ira Parker (1846-1938) built a house here in 1885. He had left his family’s tannery in 1866 to make gloves.  By 1889 he had become general manager of the Saranac Buck Glove Company, the town’s major manufacturer.  Parker sold his share in Saranac in 1898, and his 20-room Queen Anne mansion became an inn, Elliott Hall.  In 1920, the inn was bought by the Father Daniel O’Neil Council No. 1835 of the Knights of Columbus for its headquarters.  Local businessmen created Parkers Marketplace in 1987, which preserves much of the original interior while incorporating Main Street’s visual themes on the exterior.”
