Welcome To Emerald Lake Village District!

Located in historic Hillsborough, New Hampshire, USA

Welcome to the Emerald Lake Village District! We have tried to include almost any information you might need on this website and navigation is easy. If you still cannot find what you are looking for, check with our Office listed below.

Emerald Lake Village District (“ELVD”) within the Town of Hillsborough was established in 1979 for the community surrounding Emerald Lake, formerly known as Gould Pond. Originally a subdivision of seasonal homes, it has developed into primary homes for the majority of its residents. ELVD through a Board of Commissioners manages the well based water system, the beaches and recreational areas, and approximately fourteen miles of roads.

ELVD is also a community of people who enjoy the unique advantage of their own lake and beaches, as well as the proximity of Fox Forest, Pat’s Peak for skiing, and access to the shopping and dining available in Hillsborough, while located close to Concord in the southwest part of New Hampshire.
