Seeing this lake and the autumn leaves... you know why they chose this spot to settle in and build their homes and mill. It's idealic here. Wish I had a canoe...but not so sure Aussie would go for that idea.
Such an adorable little building by the pond. Again... same red brick as all the other buildings in the village. The lake behind it makes a great spot for sailing or canoeing.
Founded in 1844, the brick architecture mimics that of the rest of the town...all of which must have been built by the same men around the same time... when they developed the little town around the water powered mill.
If you want lunch... you'll visit the General Store. It's the only place to buy food in the village. It's a great old building where the lunch room is run by a mother and daughter. the store is owned and operated by Historic Harrisville, a non-profit organization committed to preserving the towns uniqueness and heritage.
We had a tasty sandwich, chips and cold drink before getting back on the road. There are some groceries sold here and a few home made deserts. Very crowded on Saturday even tho it was after 2 pm.
