City of Haverhill Resources
 
Settled in 1640, the present day city of 52,000 has maintained characteristics of hometowns throughout New England.  Found within Haverhill is a revitalized business district which, residents note, includes one of the finest Queen Anne style industrial streetscapes in America.  An established restaurant district and a proliferation of       
specialty shops are all within walking distance of each other, while surrounding neighborhoods reflect interesting architectural diversity, displaying Victorian splendor, blue-collar housing and early 20th century middle class avenues.  These residential neighborhoods display Haverhill's prominence in the shoe industry as well as its wealth of ethnic heritage and tradition.  A rural village built around Bradford Common, a river-front area where shipbuilding was carried on, is also part of the city's architectural resources. Narrative supplied by community.
