The Little Mountain Historic District is significant as an intact collection of homes, businesses, and other institutional properties constructed in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. A majority of these properties were constructed after the establishment of the Columbia, Newberry, and Laurens Railroad through Little Mountain in 1890 and reflect the Gothic Revival, Neo-Classical, Colonial Revival, Victorian or Queen Anne, and Bungalow styles that were popular during that time period. The district is a collection of sixty-four industrial, religious, and residential properties within the municipal limits of Little Mountain. Fifty buildings and two structures contribute to the character of the historic district, while twelve buildings are non-contributing. The contributing properties illustrate the growth and development of a late nineteenth century railroad town between ca. 1890 and 1950 and are representative of the types of buildings constructed in railroad towns across South Carolina during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Listed in the National Register April 18, 2003.

Most National Register properties are privately owned and are not open to the public. The privacy of owners should be respected. Not all properties retain the same integrity as when originally documented and listed in the National Register due to changes and modifications over time.
