A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Andover, New Jersey
Welcome to Andover ...
Although we found mention of Andover during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Andover was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Andover was located in Sussex County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Andover to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Andover - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Andover, please Contact Us.
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Andover might be (or was) located is in the Eastern Time Zone (EST/EDT) and observes daylight saving time
We believe that Andover would be found within the (973) and (862)<2> area codes.
