Andover, Vermont

Andover Town office:  802-875-2765 Population: 495 Sq. miles: 28

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. Crisscrossed by brooks and streams meandering through the heart of Okemo Valley, hill farms have given way to fallow fields and meadows, and quiet dirt roads wind to breathtaking views in every direction.

Located on a ridge of exquisite highlands halfway between the towns of Chester and Weston, Andover boasts unmatched peace and tranquility amidst the summits of the aptly named Terrible Mountain, and the crest of East Hill.

Today, Andover, Vermont is home to many artists and artisans, camping and fishing opportunities around every bend, even a hot air balloon maker calls Andover home! ‘Quality of life’ is defined by towns like Andover, Vermont, even if you can’t make it for a ride overhead, Andover is well worth taking the time to explore and enjoy from any vantage point.
