Andover, Vermont’s country roads weave and wander over forested hills, along shallow creeks and through expansive valleys, occasionally passing through a town whose whitewashed church with stained glass windows stands proudly in the summer sun, just as it has since it was built in 1868; whose town hall sits quietly in the shade enjoying a lazy afternoon; and whose clerk’s office is open for a little local business or pleasant conversation. It might be easy to miss a town like this, but you wouldn’t want to.
Just a hop-skip off the beaten path, Andover, Vermont has withstood the test of time much as it always has since it was granted in 1761.
