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.
UPDATE ON CHESHAM POND/DAM–The Dam Bureau has notified the town that it expects to begin refilling Chesham Pond during the first week of June. Poor soil conditions led to the need for a higher than anticipated wall. Water from Seaver Reservoir will help refill the pond, and NH Fish & Game will be notified about the partial drawdown there.
