HAVERHILL
Massachusetts, U.S.A.
QUEEN SLIPPER CITY
Welcome to Haverhill, Massachusetts.
Haverhill is a city in Essex County and home to around 61,000 people. Once a farming community by the Merrimack River, the city was incorporated in 1870. For many decades, the town was known as a major shoe-manufacturing hub, and by the end of 1913, Haverhill accounted for one tenth of the shoes produced in the U.S. For this reason, Haverhill used to be called Queen Slipper City. During the first part of the 20th century, Haverhill's thriving industry declined because of lower prices abroad, and much of old Merrimack Street and Water Street was demolished as part of the Urban Renewal project. The new developments were controversial and citizens fought hard to preserve historical parts of the city instead of tearing them down. While much of the historic downtown area was bulldozed anyway, there is still several architectural gems left. Some of these include the early colonial houses like the White Residence, The Duston Garrison House, the John Ward House and the Kimball Tavern, as well as the historic district of Rocks Village. Today, the downtown area features a quaint look, where many old factories have been converted into hip residential lofts. The Washington Street is now lined with a plethora of dining establishments and entertainment spots, as well as a new 350-space parking garage. Downtown has also received new boat docks and two small board walks overlooking the Merrimack River. Places worth visiting include the Buttonwoods Museum, John Greenleaf Whittier Homestead, Haverhill tower clock and Tattersall Farm. Park-space is abundant with the Winnekenni Park Conservation Area, which also includes the Winnekenni Castle and Lake Saltonstall.
