It's a throwback to old Haverhill.
Kimball Farm off East Broadway is about to turn 200 years old — and it's still going strong.
The farm is known for its cattle and buffalo and even llamas. The llamas, unusual animals, are part of a display on the side of the road where families stop to see the critters.
It's like a mini zoo.
The Kimball Family is well known locally. You might recall that Tyler Kimball, a Haverhill firefighter, ran against Mayor Jim Fiorentini a few elections ago.
Speaking of anniversaries
They aren't close to hitting the 200-year mark, but the Murphy family is celebrating a milestone at their Garrison Golf Center this year.
Ted and Mary Murphy opened the golf complex on Hilldale Avenue 50 years ago — and locals are happy they did.
Garrison is one of the most popular places in the city to swing away. It's also home to the Gazette's annual Hole in One Contest, which raises money for the Santa Fund.
Reaching new heights
The latest landmark building arriving downtown is really taking shape.
The Haverhill Heights complex, being built next to Haverhill Bank, is growing not only in height, but in all ways.
For quite a while, all you'd notice was the frame of the building, but lately it's "filling out'' — giving passersby a sense of what the final version will look like.
The complex is being built by pizza king Sal Lupoli and will include residential units and businesses.
