We sold our home in Haverhill & moved to Palmer. Absolutely, love it here! So quiet you can hear a pin drop. Don't miss the hustle & bustle of the city life.
The small town named Palmer is a relatively a busy little town, with a bunch of local bars and restaurants which gives it authenticity. The town provides a decent school system, along with good sport teams which may bring some excitement and life to the town. If your the kind of person that does not mind very closed minded people, likes things to stay the same way, and likes things to be calm and not too exciting than this is the town for you.
The community is very close, and everyone knows eachother which makes it amazing when we have town events such as sporting events, or celebrations.
