Andover at Work in the 1820s
 
Andover Historical Society's signature school program has been a part of Andover's curriculum since 1982. It is a highlight of the year for many 3rd grade students. Many come back with their parents to show off their favorite parts. Now we also see those students coming back as parents themselves, bringing their children to see life in the 1820s.
 
Students role play as someone who lived and worked in Andover in the early 19th century. They don aprons and get to work gathering eggs in the barn, trading them in the general store, printing in the print shop, fighting a fire in a fire brigade, and grinding spices in the kitchen.
