Harrisville is a small New Hampshire town centered around a uniquely preserved and historic 19th century industrial mill complex. Located in the heart of the Monadnock region it is comprised of 10 lakes and ponds, a rehabilitated brick and granite mill surrounded by a quaint village with a traditional New England general store and a summer farmers market. Our beautiful town, set just off Route 101 and nestled against a picturesque rural backdrop, boasts a vibrant community with active farms, people practicing traditional and digital-age trades, and a wealth of artists and artisans. It is a much-loved vacation destination for families escaping hot urban summers as well as a great place to live year-round, raise a family, or retire in peaceful quietude.

Chesham Pond Dam – The NHDES Dam Bureau expects to begin refilling Chesham Pond during the first week of June. The dam project was delayed by the poor soil conditions that required a higher wall than initially planned. A partial drawdown of Seaver Reservoir will be used to help refill Chesham Pond. Drawdown will be delayed to begin mid-June due to the spawning of bass.
