History of Harrogate

The area has been known as Harrogate since the 1800's but it wasn't until 1993 that Harrogate was officially declared a city. Dr. George Day was elected the city's first Mayor. When first incorporated the population was approximately 2700 but as new land was annexed the city grew. The 2010 U S Census shows the total population at 4,389. Along with the growth came street lights, traffic lights and a new City Park. The city's growth has brought new businesses to the area. With the addition of the Harrogate Industrial Park, the city hopes to bring in even more businesses.
