The Bradford Rail Tra

The Bradford Rail Trail is one of the many outdoor attractions in Haverhill keeping people active throughout the year. Following a now defunct railway, the trail was largely abandoned and only in recent years has restoration begun in earnest. While sections may remain unpaved, the path is clear and the sights along the way make any discomfort worthwhile. Get a new perspective on the town from along the banks of the river and keep an eye out for bald eagles, which continue to return to the area in great numbers. The trail is easy to find, as you just head to the south bank.

Winnikenni Castle

When Dr. James Nichols, a successful chemist and early Haverhill resident, returned from England he constructed Winnekenni Castle on Lake Saltonstall. The castle was meant to mimic the medieval architecture that Dr. Nichols had fallen in love with on his European vacation. Completed in 1875, the castle was dubbed Winnekenni after the Algonquin word meaning "very beautiful". Wennikenni was built to withstand the test of time, with four-foot thick walls made from local stone. The ornate Victorian interior, however, was destroyed by a fire in 1969. The castle remains a local favorite spot, a foundation manages the surrounding land as a nature preserve.
