Andover Historical's Neighborhood Programs feature three to four speakers, each telling a fun and engaging 15-minute story about a particular part of town. Our April program focuses on the area surrounding Foster’s Pond and the pond itself. What tie does Foster’s Pond have to one of the 43 Andover residents accused of witchcraft in 1692? Learn more about Bessie Goldsmith, a unique and colorful resident and her family who loved the pond and lands surrounding it. Hear Stephen Cotton, President of the Foster’s Pond Corporation, discuss the history of the pond and the organization that has preserved and protected it since 1939.
The Andover Historical Society’s mission is to “share the stories of Andover and its residents.” For this presentation we are delighted to share the podium with our community partner, Foster’s Pond Corporation.
All Andover Neighborhood Programs are open to the public free of charge but reservations are required. To reserve your seat for the 1:00pm presentation, please call us at 978.475.2236.
