Thunderstorms rolled in and the Blanchard House became dark and ominous really quick! #andoverhistoryandculture #andoverma #reflectedlight #cantlightcandles #formalparlor

It’s that time of the year again! Our Andover at Work in the 1820’s program is in full swing. We love welcoming Andover 3rd grade classes to the Blanchard House each spring! 😁

We are thrilled to announce that @andoverhistoricalsociety is officially part of ArtWeek 2018! Our event, Addison LeBoutillier: Andover Artist & Craftsman will be part of an incredible lineup regionally and statewide from April 27 - May 6, 2018. ⠀

We enjoyed a morning with Ms. Ricciardi’s 5th Grade art students celebrating their “We Are One” community art project. The students produced beautiful artwork and an original song about what community means to them. We especially enjoyed our art assignment that we were able to contribute to the project 😁👩‍🎨 Thanks for a great morning! #andoverhistorical #andoverma #weareone #communityartproject #rumi

Thank you @memorialhalllibrary for hosting a fascinating Author Talk by Richard Rubin.

You know it’s been a wild and windy day when we use the 200 year old pocket shutters! Stay dry and safe out there 😁

What does a March Nor’easter sound like in the Blanchard House attic? Take a listen! 👂 #andoverhistorical #andoverma #noreaster2018 #justcurious
