Throughout 2013 we will be celebrating the 250th Anniversary of the granting of charters to the Town of Haverhill and the Town of Newbury by the Colonial Governor, Benning Wentworth.
The precise day that the charters were signed was May 18, 1763, but Haverhill and Newbury will celebrate 250 years of history, and offer special events throughout the anniversary year.
The focus will be on historical events that shaped the lives of people in the area, while reminiscing about farms, mills, stores, schools, churches and other elements that made us who we were, and who we are today. We will talk of bridges, of roads and of railroads that have connected the two towns, making us more like one community rather than two towns separated by the Connecticut River, a state line.
The 250th anniversary - a chance to revel in our heritage!
