The Andover Historical Society houses an extensive collection of objects, photographs and archival materials from all periods of Andover’s history. Ranging from textiles and costumes to household goods and farm implements, our collection tells the stories of the many individuals, families and businesses that have had past or present connections to the town.
In addition to the c.1820s period rooms of Amos Blanchard House, the Andover Historical Society also creates temporary exhibitions for display in our Meeting Room Gallery and other spaces within the Museum.
Study of objects from the collection is permitted with advance notice by contacting the Society’s office at 978.475.2236.
As 2011 continues, the Andover Historical Society will be expanding our online collection database. Each week a new object will be featured on the Blanchard House Blog and unique links will connect readers to our collections on our OMEKA database. This new database is a work in progress and Society staff and volunteers look forward to expanding the number of available object photos and information.
