Located on the Merrimack River, it began as a farming community that would evolve into an important industrial center, beginning with sawmills and gristmills run by water power. In the 18th century, Haverhill developed tanneries, shipping and shipbuilding. The town was for many decades home to a significant shoe-making industry, by the end of 1913 Haverhill boasted one tenth of the shoes produced in America and because of this the town was known for a time as the “Queen Slipper City.” The city was also known for the manufacture of hats.
Today, Housing trends lead to the conversion of several of the old factories and business into Loft apartments and condominiums. Additionally, the Washington Street area gained new dining and entertainment spots and federal funds have been secured to remove and rebuild an old factory building on Granite Street as a 350 space parking garage. However, many old buildings remain vacant or underutilized, such as the former Woolworth department store – boarded up for some 40 years now at the intersection of Main street and Merrimack Street.
