Named best place to live in the Northeastern United States by Money Magazine, Haverhill (pop. 59,000) has been a Merrimack River mill town, a center of shoe manufacturing, and an important way station on the Underground Railroad. It also inspired Bob Montana to create the classic Archie comics – Montana attended school in Haverhill and many of the characters and locations he encountered while there appear in his comic books. Other native sons of Haverhill include Rob Zombie (musician and film director) and Tom Bergeron (television personality).Originally named Pentucket, the native American word for winding river, Haverhill avoided the Salem Witch Trials, which were prominent in Andover. Haverhill developed into an economic center when the Merrimack River mills were used for running sawmills, gristmills and eventually tanneries and other manufacturing. At one time Haverhill produced 10% of all shoes made in the United States! Today Haverhill has approximately 25,576 households with 14,865 families with a median income of $49,833 for a family.Haverhill, in Essex County, has a District Court that services Haverhill, Boxford, Georgetown, and Groveland.
