Edward MacDowell Dam and Lake on the Nubanusit Brook

Nubanusit Brook is a 14.3-mile-long (23.0 km) stream located in southern New Hampshire in the United States. It is a tributary of the Contoocook River, part of the Merrimack River watershed.

Nubanusit Brook begins at the outlet of Nubanusit Lake in Nelson, New Hampshire. The brook flows south into Harrisville, interrupted by Harrisville Pond and Skatutakee Lake, then flows east to the MacDowell Reservoir (constructed for flood control) in Peterborough. The brook turns south, passes the village of West Peterborough, and reaches the Contoocook River after passing through Peterborough village and over several mill dams.
