Residents of Haverhill, Mass., live in an idyllic setting along the Merrimack River, which once powered the industrial mills of yesteryear. The city is just a short drive from New Hampshire and approximately one hour away from Boston. An international shoe capital in the past, Haverhill gave a nod to that part of its heritage in 2009, with a Shoelabration display of large-scale shoe sculptures placed at strategic points throughout the city - some of which are still there today.
Today, Haverhill is thriving - particularly its Cyber District, which serves as a hub for technology-related companies. The city's farms, lakes and riverside properties are just a brief drive from the downtown area. Those looking for Haverhill apartments for rent can rest assured that whichever area of the city they choose to settle in, they won't be far from the hustle and bustle of downtown or the opportunity to relax in a picturesque setting.
One of Massachusetts' oldest communities, Haverhill spans nearly 36 square miles. It was originally settled as farmland when it was established in 1640, but became home to saw and grist mills in the late 17th century, then tanneries and boatyards in the early 18th century. Later on, it metamorphosed into the shoe-manufacturing capital of the world. Many of the city's historic mills still stand today, although most have been converted.
Washington Square, the center of Haverhill's quaint downtown area, is home to numerous antique shops, specialty stores and restaurants for all palates. Its brick-walled business district is attractive as well as functional, and the area is quickly establishing itself as a center for computer technology and research industries.
Technology may be booming in Haverhill, but it's by no means the area's only industry. In fact, Haverhill's largest employers hail from a diverse range of sectors, including healthcare and education. Essent Healthcare of Massachusetts has one of the largest workforces in the city, along with Merrimack Valley Hospital, Northern Essex Community College (NECC) and the Cedardale Health & Fitness recreational facility.
NECC's approximately 15,000 full- and part-time students can take their pick from the more than 70 programs of study offered by the two-year community institution. Zion Bible College, a ministry school that emphasizes Pentecostal preaching, is also located in Haverhill. Merrimack College in nearby North Andover is another option for those who are considering Haverhill apartments and want to pursue further educational opportunities.
Haverhill ranked high on City-Data.com's March cost of living index - it registered a 132.7, while the national average is 100. The median gross rent of apartments in Haverhill is $946, according to U.S. Census Bureau data.
Haverhill's annual KidsFest is the perfect event for families with children. Held every May, the festival features rides, games, food and other activities. Haverhill residents also throw a party to welcome the fall - aptly named SeptemberFest - that takes place downtown.
For fans of outdoor activities, the nearby Lake Saltonstall is perfect for swimming and sailing, while the Merrimack River's hiking and jogging trails are ideal for those who prefer to stay on land. There's something for golfers, too, as the city is home to four 18-hole golf courses.
Haverhill's main attraction is the medieval-style Winnekenni Castle. The 125-year-old structure serves as a backdrop for numerous indoor and outdoor cultural events during the summer, ranging from concerts to mystery dinner theater productions. Those eager for a bit more excitement can take the less than half-hour drive to Canobie Lake, an amusement park in Salem, New Hampshire.
