Caleb Dustin Hunking School


Caleb Dustin Hunking bears a close relationship to Haverhill’s most historical character, being a direct descendant of Hannah Duston. Born in Hill, New Hampshire February 24, 1805, he attended Franklin Academy, Franklin, New Hampshire for a short time after which teaching occupied several years of his early life. Removing to Haverhill he became one of the best known and esteemed shoe manufacturers in this City. In 1855 he became the first man from Haverhill to sit on the Governors Council and in 1857 served in the State Senate. Later he was “Justice of the Peace and Quorum for all of the Counties of the Commonwealth.” In 1847 he built a home at the corner of Merrimack and How Streets where the Masonic Temple now is. When the Business Section expanded from Water Street to Merrimack Street in 1871 the house was moved to Main Street. In 1923 it was sold to the American Legion for use as a home. Expanding his shoe business he built “the Granite Front” a business block at 68-84 Merrimack Street where he occupied the upper floors, renting the street floor to R. H. Macy who later sold his business here and moved to New York where he established and built up the spectacularly successful department store bearing the name of “Macy’s.” A substantial amount of capitol is said to have been supplied by his friend Caleb Hunking.…..

  • A Message from the Principal 3/17/2019

    Dear Parents and Guardians,
    School officials and city officials are aware that many parents and residents are concerned with the traffic around Hunking during drop-off and pick-up hours. We are trying different patterns to cut back on the traffic issues. This week we changed how the buses exit and enter school grounds. We will continue to
    use Winchester for the buses but beginning on Monday the buses will enter on Winchester and exit on South Main Street. Do not drive down Winchester and try to enter or turn around. This entrance is for buses only.
    Revere will open on Monday for Upper School access only. Cars will not be permitted to turn right when entering on Revere.

    Estimados padres y tutores, los
    funcionarios de la escuela y los funcionarios de la ciudad son conscientes de que muchos padres y
    residentes están preocupados por el tráfico que rodea a Hunking durante las horas de llegada y recogida.
    Estamos intentando diferentes patrones para reducir los problemas de tráfico. Esta semana cambiamos
    la forma en que los autobuses salen y entran a los terrenos escolares. Continuaremos usando
    Winchester para los autobuses, pero a partir del lunes los autobuses entrarán en WInchester y saldrán
    por South Main Street. No conduzca por WInchester e intente entrar o dar la vuelta. Esta entrada es
    solo para autobuses.
    Revere abrirá el lunes solo para el acceso a la Escuela Superior. No se permitirá que los automóviles
    giren a la derecha al ingresar a Revere.

    We will be conducting several health screenings this year. These are mandated Massachusetts Department of Health requirements, which are performed yearly.
    The following screening will be done at Hunking School: postural screening exam on all students in grades 5-8 and heights and weights (BMI) on the 1st, 4th, and 7 th
    grade students.
    The results of these screenings will not be communicated home unless we have concerns that merit further medical assessment. Each student will be screened privately, and all results will remain confidential.

    Please feel free to call the nurses with any questions.
