[ARCHIVED] Town Seal Survey

In 1899 Massachusetts passed a law requiring every city and town to establish an official seal to be placed on official documents.  The Commonwealth of Massachusetts and municipalities across the state with official seals that include imagery of Indigenous Peoples have begun the process of reviewing these seals to determine if the seals still accurately reflect the community as a whole.

The Town of Andover recently established a Town Seal Review Committee.  The Committee’s charge is to review the current town seal and solicit public input to assist with developing recommendations that may result in modifications to the Town Seal.

Since 1855, the official Andover Town Seal has been modified 4 times. As part of this review process, the Town Seal Review Committee is launching a brief survey.  The survey results will help guide the Committee’s next steps.

A more extensive history of the Town Seal can be found here:
