George Washington visited Haverhill on November 4, 1789, as part of his "triumphant circuit" of New England. During his return trip to New York City, Washington chose Harrod's Tavern on Main Street to spend the night. Washington described Haverhill as "the pleasantest village" he had ever passed through, and lauded its "commercial advantages and beauty of location". After he left Haverhill, the townspeople named the main meeting area Washington Square.
