Harrisville, New Hampshire

Harrisville is Cheshire County’s youngest town, incorporated in 1870 from parts of Dublin and Nelson. It was named in honor of Milan Harris, whose several stone, brick and wool mills made use of the abundant water power of 3 nearby lakes until 1970. A number of its buildings are protected by the Historic Harrisville, Inc., and the picturesque village is a great favorite with artists.
