What's Haverhill's oldest street? What TV celebrities past and present come from here?

Haverhill Trivia Book, revised by students, has the answers


”It was only available at library,” Brown said about the original trivia book. “It makes a great gift for Haverhill history fans. I bought it as a Christmas present about 15 years ago and wound up getting a copy for myself.”

Brown paid to have 400 copies of the book printed, but hopes to obtain a grant to print more copies and make them available to nonprofit groups in the city to sell as a fundraiser. He said Haverhill High’s booster groups and student clubs will also sell the trivia books to raise money for activities. The new books are priced at $10 each.

“I am setting up a website and will have a Twitter account for a daily trivia question,” said Brown, who serves as Haverhill High’s representative to the Haverhill Citizens Hall of Fame Committee.

“Although the audience for this book might be mostly townies, I think new people will be interested as well,” Brown said. “I hope to get people involved in creating a Haverhill sports trivia book in the future.”
