Woolworth’s film now streaming

Dec 30, 2015

The newest documentary film in Historic New England’s Everyone’s History series is now streaming online.

Woolworth’s: Remembering Haverhill’s Shopping District recalls a time when residents of cities and towns walked downtown to shop at five-and-dimes and local businesses. In Haverhill, Massachusetts, Woolworth’s was a symbol of a bustling commercial center that struggled after urban renewal and the rise of the shopping mall.

Historic New England partnered with the Buttonwoods Museum, Haverhill Community Media, and Haverhill Public Library Special Collections on the film, which premiered at a series of popular public screenings this fall. Now, you can watch it on our YouTube channel.
