Centre-Harbor, New Hampshire
Strafford county. Is situated between Winnepisiogee and Squam Lakes; bounded N.E. by Moultonborough, S.E. by Meredith, S.W. by New Hampton, N.W. by Holderness and Squam lake. It is distant 39 miles from Concord, 60 from Portsmouth, and 104 from Boston.—Measley pond and Squam lake are partly in this town. The latter furnishes fine trout and has several islands valuable for grazing. The soil is very good, mostly a rich loam. The town is pleasantly situated, and its local position probably gave rise to its name. The first settlements were made by Ebenezer Chamberlain, in 1765, and Col. Joseph Senter, in 1767. Population, in 1830, 577.
