The Little House


The Little House—(TLH) a charming rustic house with a studio and activity center—welcomed its first visitors in 2009. The Little House is a community gathering place for a variety of short or long-term programs and activities, entirely supported by the people of Groveland, Big Oak Flat and neighboring communities. Last year, more than 6,000 people visited The Little House.

The Little House charter is to enrich the lives of our local citizens through health, recreation, social interaction and lifelong learning experiences. We strive to understand and identify community needs and support those needs through a variety of programs and activities.
