*Area, Population and Density rankings refer to Andover’s relative position among Vermont’s 255 civic entities (9 cities, 242 towns, 4 gores and grants). Complete rankings are here.

Many of the grantees were from Connecticut; it is likely that this Andover is named for the one there, which in turn was named for the one in Massachusetts.

The town was nearly twice its present size when it was granted. However, a ridge of highlands (including the aptly named Terrible Mountain) made it virtually impossible to get from one side of the town to the other, so the western portion was made into the separate town of Weston in 1799.

Ironically, most of the Pease family, for whom the Andover village of Peaseville was named, found themselves in Weston after the split.

Utilities

Notes about utilities:

One electric or phone company indicates that company serves the entire town. More than one of either indicates each serves different areas of town.
A listed cable company MIGHT mean the entire town is covered, but not necessarily. More than one listed indicates each serves different areas of town.
Unless your area is one served by Vermont’s only gas utility, your only option is bottled gas (any dealer).
