Haverhill, Massachusetts, USA (Ayers Village)

People, Pictures and News From the Past

Where is Haverhill, Massachusetts, USA? 

Haverhill, Essex, Massachusetts, USA
The town was founded in 1640 by settlers from Newbury, and was originally known as Pentucket, which is the native American word for "place of the winding river". It is said that these early settlers worshipped under a large oak tree, known as the "Worshipping Oak".

The town was renamed for the town of Haverhill, England, in deference to the birthplace of the settlement's first pastor, Rev. John Ward.
