Brief History[edit | edit source]

Andover was chartered on October 13, 1761. The town was nearly twice its present size when it was granted. However, a ridge of highlands (including the aptly named Terrible Mountain) made it virtually impossible to get from one side of the town to the other, so the western portion was made into the separate town of Weston in 1799. [1][2]
