Nestled in historic Essex County, life in Andover, Massachusetts offers a type of charm you just don’t get elsewhere. The community is tight-knit and friendly, making it a wonderful place to raise children or enjoy a quiet summer afternoon. Since we at Pest Control Unlimited LLC love Andover MA so much, we’ve put together a list of interesting things to do in the community.
If you’re an art lover, or even just casually appreciate paintings, sculptures, etc., the Addison Gallery of American Art is a must-see destination. It claims to be one of the most comprehensive collections of American art pieces in the world, with over 17,000 objects in its collection. Those works date all the way back to the 18th century.
There’s always something new to see at the gallery, which holds about twelve shows a year. The permanent collection exhibitions switch out regularly, and major traveling exhibitions offer a unique opportunity to study additional art. Attending the gallery costs nothing.
Previously called Ashdale Farm, this garden and historic home sits on 91 beautiful acres in nearby North Andover Massachusetts. It’s been called a perfect example of “the country place” or a rural retreat where indoor and outdoor living spaces flowed into each other. John Gardner Coolidge was the previous owner, using the property as his summer home. It had been in the Stevens and Coolidge families since 1729.
Today, you can see this slice of history at any season, although the summer gives the best impression of how the owners used it. Walk through the main house and behold period pieces, including artifacts from Asia and classic American furniture. Spend time in the gardens, which are at peak color from the middle of June through September.
Spend time outdoors during any season by exploring Ward Reservation. It’s 700 acres of open and wooded land for everyone to enjoy. The most popular thing to do at this public space is climbing the three different hills and see the Merrimack Valley and even the famous Boston Skyline, reminding you that Andover isn’t that far from the city. At the summit of one hill are the Solstice Stones, which mark the cardinal points on a compass.
Explore almost 10 miles of trails at Ward Reservation, which are perfect for walks or jogging. Or venture onto the boardwalk that takes you to Pine Hole Pond, which is a quaking bog. Quite a few animals and plants call the bog home, making it a place of strange beauty.

Note to Client
Unfortunately there is not a solution to solve all pests that enter your home at once. With a proper quarterly maintenance and inspection program along with some new cultural practices we can minimize the amount of pests you will see. We strive to stay ahead of the pests you may see by attending state certified classes. These classes help us to learn new techniques and pests that are being encountered.
Your home is an ever changing environment. Because of this, what may not be a problem one day could be the next. Whether you bring back an unexpected pest on your next vacation or something is shipped in a box to your home. We are just a phone call away to resolve the problem before it worsens. If for any reason you are not satisfied with our services we will work with you until you are.
