The Heartbeat of Haverhill

Good News from A Great City Haverhill, MA

A Few Shining Hours Savoring Fall in Haverhill

The Heartbeat of Haverhill watched for days as heavy rains ripped the leaves from the branches. The wrath of the Nor’easter of rain rather than snow uprooted trees, flooded streets and overran leaf clogged gutters. Would the next sunny day be too late to capture the beauty of Haverhill in fall?

Finally day broke bright rather than gray and the last of the clouds blew out of town to reveal a stunning Saturday morning. THOH finagled a few hours to chronicle the beauty that makes Haverhill such a special place to enjoy from the outside.

We started at Tattersall Farm but at 7:45 am the light wasn’t working with us. We cruised around the 35 miles that make Haverhill the third largest Massachusetts city based on geographic area and whipped the camera out over and over again necessitating a battery change, and a stop to buy a new memory stick before we finished up around noon. The Heartbeat of Haverhill wants to share what we found. Note the images surrounded by a black outline are part of a slide show – watch and see the different images.

NOTE:  Take the ridge trail; the shore trail off the boat ramp is far too slippery on pine needles on its steep bed of pine needles and leaves. Remember especially in isolated areas to always hike with a buddy.

The level of beauty and landscape options presented by Haverhill are incomparable and abundant. The Heartbeat of Haverhill could have spent a week seeking out all our beautiful vistas, but this being New England we all know we need to make hay while the sun shines and that might only be a few hours on one day this week. THOH invites all readers to get out and explore on your own and report back on what you find.

Did you know that Haverhill has a trail guide? You can find it at the Haverhill Public Library gift shop.
