Beginnings [1]

In March, 1864, the townships of Andover and Hampton were set off from that of Newton, by which its dimensions were reduced to a very small circle covered by the town and its immediate suburbs.

Andover had an area of 20 square miles, five miles north and south, and four east and west. In 1870 the population was slightly more than 1,100 residents.
