Andover Historical Society’s Old Time Fair Returns on August 7

Also Freight House sales and museum exhibits

By Judy Perreault

Don’t miss the Andover Historical Society sale at the Freight House on Saturdays throughout the summer and fall. There are many vintage items for sale. We have beds, chairs, tables, lamps, dishes, tools, bureaus, and  birdcages. You name it, we probably have one. If not, we may get it, as new items are arriving all the time. We recently sold a composting system.  

The museum buildings will also be open on Saturdays from 10 AM to 3 PM and Sundays from 12:30 to 3 PM. There is a special exhibit about the Thompson family in the Emmons General Store.

This year, the Historical Society is celebrating its 40th year with the return of its Old Time Fair on Sunday, August 7, 2022 . Many activities are planned for the day .

On this date, there will be a special commemoration for Richard Potter, a famous black magician and ventriloquist, who lived in Potter Place from 1815 until his death in 1835.

More information on these activities will be included in future issues of the Beacon.
