North Andover's inland location and landscape features such as rivers, lakes, rolling hills and fertile soils shaped the agricultural and industrial history of the community from the earliest Native American use of the land to the present day.
North Andover was the original political and religious center of a larger 17th century settlement including Andover, North Andover and the eastern part of Lawrence. First called Cochiechewick Plantation for the tall trees and rivers, the area was reserved by the General Court in 1634 for an inland plantation. The early agricultural economy was assisted by the mills along Cochiechewick Brook.
