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.

 Ross Swain Playing Piano Music on Common

Ross Swain Playing Piano on Common for everyone to enjoy. Ross is one of the talented artists who has donated his time and talents for the free music program during the summer every other Friday evening in Andover.



If you enjoy sitting back and listening to some good live music then grab a chair and bring the whole family out to the FREE music provided every other Friday evening  6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Common. Thanks to some talented kind hearted musically inclined people who have volunteered their time and talents to provide a variety of music genres for everyone to enjoy. Ross Swain, Stevie Simmons, Perry Stinson, Pete Coolidge, and others are just some of the people involved who are combining their talents for our enjoyment. Below are some clips of some of the music and pictures.
