Center Harbor is One of the Most Scenic Towns in New England
Aside from the closing of Belknap College and the Center Harbor two room school house, the development of Senter's Market, the building of a bandstand for Friday summer concerts, and most recently, the residential development of some of the downtown Lake Winnipesaukee shoreline, Center Harbor has seen little change. Center Harbor was the location of the Squam Lake cottage in the film "On Golden Pond". That location and the sweeping views of Squam Lake from Center Harbor Neck are only two of the sites that make Center Harbor one of the most scenic towns in all of New England!
