The Spanish military expedition of Pedro de Villasur to this area took place in 1720. From 1770 to 1800, Arapaho and Cheyenne tribes of Native Americans migrated to this region. Fur trappers and traders frequented the area in the early and mid 19th century. The community was named after one of the early settlers, Richard Sullivan Little. The local economy shifted from agriculture to manufacturing during World War II. Plants grown here were used for the production of pneumatics, munitions and aerospace products.
