Welcome To The Andover Journal
This is the Andover Journal
Website. This is a journal of information and pictures about my
life in Andover, Maine.
I originally started this website so that my
kids could learn more about their roots and where I was born and
raised. It has slowly evolved into more
than that as it also serves as a scrapbook, picture album, and
source of historical
information about Andover.
There are some links on this website
to other resources of the Town of Andover as well, but it's not
really a Town of Andover Website.
There has been talk about the
Town of Andover starting it's own website which is probably a good
idea, however I'm not sure when exactly that may happen. I hope you
enjoy our website. I would also like to encourage you to share any
old photos you might have of people or places from Andover as people
seem to really enjoy old photos the most.
