A monument marks the site of the community of Littleton, founded in 1879 on the southwest quarter of 22-7-12W in the Rural Municipality of Victoria, by brothers Nathan and Robert Little. In 1885, the Canadian Pacific Railway bypassed Littleton and the settlement moved to NW7-7-12W, the present site of Cypress River. A commemorative monument was unveiled by the Cypress River Agricultural Society on 23 June 1996.
