Andover Creamery, Rt 6 & 316

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

Seventy-Six Andover residents banded together in 1886 and built "Andover Creamery". Up until then each family churned their own butter by hand. The churns at the creamery were steam-powered. The company also shipped out butter to distant markets via the nearby railroad line. The company prospered until 1915, then the building became a general store and gas station, then demolished in 2002 for the creation of a veterans park. Now it is the site of the covered bridge of the Hop River Trail, a hiking and bicycle trail running from Bolton Notch down to Columbia Connecticut. [Click here Hop River Corridor]
