Eliakim Littell, founded Littell’s Living Age, a publication lasting nearly 100 years that reprinted highlights from American and British newspapers. His son, Robert Littell, took over the reins after his death with his sister, Susan Littell, assisting as editor. After Robert died in 1896, the house was purchased by Harry Freeman who tore down the house, created a cross street in its place, named Littell Rd., and built a development of houses.
