after Amesbury was settled in 1642, the rushing waters of the Powow River
were harnessed for mills, and the modest farming community began its
ascent into American industrial history. Amesbury, it is believed, was the
site of the first American factory to produce machine-made nails. Ship
building, followed in the 19th century by textile mills, dominated the
settlementís early industry. From 1853 until well into the 1900ís,
Amesbury carriages, known around the world for their workmanship and
style, were the economic heartbeat of the town. The Merrimack Hat Factory
at its peak produced more head gear than any of its competitors. And the
nationís number one candy was, for a while, Hoytís Buffalo Brand
Peanut Butter Kisses, produced...in Amesbury.
Major industries are high technology, defense companies, furniture
manufacturers, and metal and plastic fabricators.
