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, and a rehabilitated brick and granite mill surrounded by a quaint village with a traditional New England general store. Set just off Route 101 and nestled against a picturesque rural backdrop, Harrisville 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.
