The Harrisville Mill Village - Part 2: As previously stated, Harrisville NH is a unique, well-preserved 19th-century mill town. Below are more pictures taken around the mill pond in the center of the old village. Originally called Twitchell's Mills, the village began as a combination sawmill and gristmill in 1774. Today, Harrisville retains its two early textile mills together with a range of related buildings, including boarding houses, workers’ cottages, owners’ houses, a store, meeting house, school, dams and mill ponds. There is still much to explore and we will be going back soon. More pics to follow.
