For those of you new to the neighborhood — welcome to Harvard Acres! Our neighborhood includes about 200 homes and common land on Conant Drive (including the tennis and basketball courts).

The Harvard Acres Homeowners Association (HAHA) collects voluntary annual dues to cover the taxes, insurance, and maintenance of the common land, as well as family friendly activities within our neighborhood community.

The HAHA Social Committee is a group of neighborhood volunteers who meet annually to organize events and help maintain the common area.

Harvard Acres Common Land on Conant Drive

The 300 acres of land that is now Harvard Acres was once a dairy farm, which was owned and operated by the Otto Stein family for almost 60 years. Development of Harvard Acres began in the late 1960s and continued through the early 1980s. Here is an original brochure for the neighborhood:

The above aerial photo depicts the western side of the neighborhood circa 1970. The Delaney project had not been completed when this photo was taken. The photo shows the west end of Kirkland Drive, and Conant Drive is running across at the top. Also notice that the pond beyond the tennis courts had not been completed at this point.
