Since Haverhill was first settled in 1640, its citizens have shown courage and
determination to make it a better place to live. Many unique individuals
have called Haverhill home, including Hannah Dustin, who was captured
by and then avenged a group of Abenaki Indians; business pioneer Thomas
Sanders, financial backer of Alexander Graham Bell; department store
entrepreneur Rowland Macy; James Nichols, whose home Winnekenni
Castle became one of Haverhill's most famous landmarks; baseball star
Carlos Pena; Gerald Ashworth, Olympic gold medalist; literary greats John
Greenleaf Whittier and Andre Dubus; Archie Comics artist Bob Montana;
screenwriter Harold Livingston; and rising star Christopher Golden. Movie
mogul Louis B. Mayer and television personalities Tom Bergeron and Frank
Fontaine, along with gardening legend James Crocket, all began their careers
here. And Haverhill's veterans who have gone into harm's way to defend
our country are not to be forgotten. This book is a tribute to them and all
of Haverhill's citizens boldly moving forward.
