Center Harbor gets its name from two sources: from its location,
centered between Meredith and Moultonborough Harbors, and also for the
Senter family, who were owners of a large amount of property in the area.
The town was a landing place for lake steamers and stagecoaches, making it
a popular summer resort. Center Harbor was a favorite spot of John Greenleaf
Whittier, and the home of Dudley Leavitt, author of the first Farmer's Almanac
in 1797. Reprinted from www.nhes.state.nh.us
