Pollyanna Statue

Statue in Littleton & Franconia

Alright cynics, pessimists and grouches, give it up a minute for the joyous Pollyanna statue on the lawn of the library. The children's book character, an eternal optimist, stands with her arms flung wide, ready for your Instagram photo. The author of Pollyanna, published in 1913, was Eleanor H Porter, a Littleton native. Rub the statue's left shoe for good luck.
