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.…..

    Dear Parents and Guardians, Last week after the Upper School Open House we had a vaping presentation. I was shocked by what the statistics are revealing about vaping. In 2015, 23.7% of Massachusetts high school students reported vaping in the past 30 days compared to 2.6% of adults, making vaping among high school students nine times higher than that of adults. Nearly half (44.8%) of Massachusetts high school students have tried vaping. In fact, the reported use of e-cigarettes among high school students was higher than for all other tobacco products combined. -Get Ouraged Campaign Vaping is dangerous and it is important as parents that we are knowledgeable about the product and the accessories.

    Estimados padres y tutores:, La semana pasadadespués de la Casa Abierta de Upper School, tuvimos una presentación de vapeo. Me sorprendió lo que las estadísticas revelan sobre el vapeo. En 2015, el 23.7% de los estudiantes de secundaria de Massachusetts reportaron vapeo en los últimos 30 días en comparación con el 2.6% de los adultos, lo que hace que el vapeo entre los estudiantes de secundaria sea nueve veces más alto que el de los adultos. Casi la mitad (44.8%) de los estudiantes de secundaria de Massachusetts han intentado vapear. De hecho, el uso informado de cigarrillos electrónicos entre los estudiantes de secundaria fue mayor que para todos los demás productos de tabaco combinados. – Consiga la campaña de Ouraged Vaping es peligroso y es importante como padres que conozcamos el producto y los accesorios.
