Peek inside closets, pull aside curtains, and explore behind the scenes in the Blanchard House and Andover Historical Society. Special one-hour Behind the Scenes Tours are offered monthly.
Here’s your chance to give in to that irresistible urge to look behind the “staff only” and “no entry” signs you always see in museums.
What will you find?
What treasures lie in store rooms and archives?
What secrets are hidden behind the closed doors?
Where is the Blanchard house’s “Harry Potter closet?”
Andover Historical is offering Behind the Scenes tours with a fun twist. As you tour the Blanchard house attics, closets, nooks and crannies, you’ll also hear stories about rarely seen collections items.
The stories will change with every tour, so there will always be something new to learn
Maybe you’ll hear about a Civil War artifact
.....or an early 20th century bob sled
.....or a pair of leather pants from the 1970s
each with a unique Andover story.
