New Homes Available in Andover, MN

 

Great open spaces abound for your new home!

There oftentimes are interesting stories about how cities were named. Andover is an example. According to myth, an eyewitness saw a train roll over in a swamp and reported that it “rolled over and over” and that’s how it came to be known as Andover. While a good story, it’s apparently not true – it was a stop on the Great Northern Railway, which, for reasons unknown, took to calling it Andover by the late 1890s. The city was established in 1974 and today covers nearly 35 square miles within Anoka County.
