This beautiful collection of reservations is home to many beautiful hemlock groves, horsetail, an open meadow, and high bluffs. Filled with birches and wildflowers, the riverside trails encompass the Indigenous history of Andover as well. Long before European settlers came to Andover, the Pennacook Native Americans settled up and down the Merrimack River, fishing and hunting game. A Pennacook village was located on Pine Island and burial grounds have been found near the riverbank. Local Native American artifacts can be seen at the Phillips Academy Peabody Museum. This reservation is rich with history, and is great for understanding how our current town and land conservation organizations came to be.
