Andover: A Small and Scenic Town

Welcome to the town of Andover, a small New England community of approximately 3,600 residents.

Many small rivers and streams flow through this town, including the Hop River, Burnap Brook, Staddle Brook and the Skunkamaug River. The Bear Swamp Brook runs through the Nathan Hale State Forest in the Northeast section of town, while the 3-acre Bishop Swamp, part of the State-owned Bishop Conservation Area, is located in the Southwest corner of town.

Passing through Andover is the Hop River State Park Trail, a 6-mile gravel and compact earth trail that is part of the 3,000-mile East Coast Greenway connecting Bolton and Columbia at the town lines. This trail is used for hiking, bicycling and horseback riding.

A Quick History of Andover

Andover has always been known for its natural beauty and recreation opportunities. Before the arrival of European settlers, this location was home to the Nipmuck and Pequot tribes, who used to fish and hunt in the area.

As centuries passed and improvements to transportation made travel easier, Andover flourished. What was once a small village in 1848 (when Andover was incorporated) soon grew to the town we know today. A post office, museum, public library, lake, farmers' market and elementary school provide everything homeowners need.

Historic Districts and Landmarks

The original Town Hall of 1893 houses the Museum of Andover History, operated by the Historical Society. The new Town Hall is located on School Road.

The Doris Chamberlain Nature Preserve, located on Route 316 near School Road, includes a small pond and leisure trails. The Veterans Memorial Field in nearby Hebron provides baseball fields and hosts youth sports programs.
