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.…..

    Hello,

    The Bobcats had another great week!  We even had some acapella singing during 6th grade lunch!  

    The Hunking student cell phone policy has been the talk of the school this week.  Please refer to the handbook for the full policy, but students have been reminded that they are not allowed to use cell phones any time while at school. This includes after school activities.  This is for the safety of all students at Hunking. If a staff member sees a phone, it will be confiscated and held in the office until a parent or guardian picks it up.  

    Parents of 8th graders:  It’s time to start planning the 8th grade trip.  Please click on the link to fill out this initial survey.  More info will be available soon! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd9MDCJJfIkAqVn3Us-7TktOK0UECSE1ZdO5l4aHvhoH_4WHQ/viewform?usp=sf_link
