Throughout 2013 we celebrated the 250th Anniversary of the granting of charters (issued May 18, 1763) to the Town of Haverhill and the Town of Newbury by the Colonial Governor, Benning Wentworth. We focused 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.
There is a special postal cancellation featuring the 250th logo at the Newbury post office until February 25, 2014.
The 250th anniversary - a chance to revel in our heritage!
