Methuen, MA

A picturesque city, Methuen lies along the Merrimack River and bisects the Spicket River.  Industrial growth in the 1800’s influenced Methuen’s development. With the construction of the Methuen Cotton Mills at Spicket River falls in the 1820’s and the increased manufacturing of hats and shoes in small factories along the Spicket, Methuen grew as an industrial leader in MA.  Home to the first concert organ in the United States, Methuen seamlessly melds the industrial with the cultural. http://www.ci.methuen.ma.us/
