121 Main Street

 

121 Main Street, also known as the Isadore Fish House, was built in the 1870s around the same time as 119 Main Street, and now, the two houses serve as the gateway to the National Historic District of Harrisville.  The Isadore Fish House has passed through many hands over the years, becoming increasingly run down such that, after purchasing 119 Main Street in June of 2016, Historic Harrisville Inc. realized that it would make sense to purchase 121 Main Street, as well, which at the time was in foreclosure.   HHI began working with the bank in August of 2016 and after much hard work, finally succeeded in acquiring 121 Main Street on June 22, 2017.

Erin Hammerstedt, executive director of HHI, gathered community members who volunteered to help clean out the property on Wednesday, June 28th.  About 20 people participated, donning gloves and masks, and in just over an hour, filled the dumpster! Volunteers were rewarded for their hard work with refreshments, compliments of the Havills.  The group looks forward to gathering again when a new dumpster arrives.

Once the property has been cleaned up, renovations will begin with the promise of adding two additional housing units to Historic Harrisville’s affordable housing stock.
