Andover is a small town of less than 1,000 residents, located in a scenic valley near the New Hampshire border. The first settlers in the area were farmers and woodsmen, and although farming has declined in popularity, forest products are still a mainstay of Andover's economy. Tourism is also very important to the town of Andover. The community is home to the photographic Lovejoy Covered Bridge, one of five located in the state, and the Appalachian Trail passes through the western edge of town. The local horse club hosts regular monthly events and Andover is also conveniently located near several downhill ski areas. Other outdoor activities in the area include cross-country skiing, fishing, hunting, boating, hiking and camping. The village of Andover consists of two general stores, two restaurants, three bed & breakfast inns, two churches and several other small businesses. Three Andover buildings are listed on the U.S. Park Service's National Register of Historic Places. They consist of the Merrill-Poor House, located on State Route 120 about a half-mile east of Andover Village, the Andover Public Library, located on Church Street and the Andover Hook and Ladder Company Building, located on Elm Street.
