|Harrisville, the Alcona County seat, is located on the pristine waters of Lake Huron at the junction of M-72 and US-23. This community began when fishermen Simeon Holden and Crosier Davison established Davisonís Mill here in 1854. They sold out to Benjamin Harris and his sons who came from New York. The township and city were named after them in 1860 when the township was established. It incorporated as a village in 1887 and later as a city in 1905. |
Tourism is the main business in Harrisville today, with several motels and bed & breakfast establishments situated near and along the Lake Huron coastline. The Harrisville State Park also lies just south of town and offers camping and swimming on Lake Huron. Harbor Park is also located right in town, just to the north of Main Street, and is a good place for a picnic, sightseeing the marina, or listening to the rapids at the mouth of Mill Creek flowing into the harbor. And, Harrisvilleís location to the many other outdoor recreational opportunities in Alcona County, too numerous to mention, just canít be beat. Címon up and experience it for yourself!
