Haverhill Reviews

88 reviews
All Categories
Haverhill is an up and coming city. The downtown area consists mainly of renovated mill buildings. There is a vibrant downtown restaurant scene that boasts some of Massachusetts best dining establishments. There are a variety of lakes and parks, most notably Winnekenni, a large plot of land surrounding Lake Kenoza. Diversity is one of Haverhill's greatest assests, bringing an amazing variety to the culture. There are also quite the variety of small, personally owned farms that provide fresh local produce in the warmer months. Although there is still room for improvement, Haverhill has done an amazing job enhancing the city in the last few years.
Review Haverhill
Haverhill is a medium, densely populated city; former shoe capital with factoryies turned into apartment complexes. It is diverse in its population and has a large variety of job opportunities. We have a small community hospital, which supports the population between two other hospitals; 10 miles one way and 10 miles opposite, leaving our hospital midpoint between the two.

What I would like to see change in our community is to see more problem solving/help in the form of counseling and education for the addiction/mental health population.
Haverhill is a thriving, diverse city that offers you limitless opportunities and experiences. From the restaurants to the public schools, Haverhill allows their community to enjoy what is around them. Haverhill is home to decades of history, gaining its nickname the "Shoe City," because of the high number of exportation of shoes when first established. The diverse community allows students and adults to interact with people who come from all different backgrounds. This is very important for students who are about to enter the work force or college, because it teaches you to work with others who are "different" than your "normal." The parks and open fields, and of course the hills, sets Haverhill apart from any surrounding town.
