Changing the Form of Government
In 1972, the Grow Township Board of Supervisors recognized that the town was growing at a very rapid rate. They felt a village form of government would provide better services to the community. Board supervisors then voted in favor of proceeding with the incorporation process. The board voted to submit a new name for the village. "Andover Village" was chosen because the name Andover had historical interest. The historical interest, we believe, came from the Andover train station.

Train Myth
You may have heard the popular "train myth" about how Andover received its name. The myth states that a train tipped over in a swamp, and an eyewitness, relaying the incident, said it "went over and over," thereby naming the city "Andover."

Research reveals that the name Andover first appeared in an article dated March 14, 1899, in the Anoka County Union Newspaper - before train tracks were ever built in the city. The article stated that the Eastern Minnesota line of the Great Northern Railway (http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=...) was in the process of constructing railroad tracks from the Coon Creek Cut-off to the north. The railway announced that new railroad stations with mathematical precision were to be located 5 miles apart from each other. The new stations (from Coon Creek to the north, along the new railroad line) were to be named Andover, Cedar, Bethel, Isanti, Cambridge, Stanchfield, Braham, Grasston, Cornell, and Brook Park. On July 4, 1899, the 1st train passed through the Andover Station. Where the railway came up with the name Andover still remains unknown.

City Transition
Andover Village was established in 1972 and then became the City of Andover, a city of the 4th class, in 1974. Today the City of Andover's population exceeds 30,000, classifying it as a 2nd class city.

The Andover City Center Complex is located at the intersection of Crosstown Boulevard and Hanson Boulevard and is home to the city offices, Public Works Department (https://www.andovermn.gov/133/Public-Works-Division), Water Treatment Plant, Community Center (https://www.andovermn.gov/180/Community-Center) / YMCA (http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CB0QFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ymcatwincities.org%2Flocations%2Fandover_ymca_community_center%2F&ei=pUDlU__YKrKN8QHE6ICoBw&usg=AFQjCNGcGjIWtgn2mzf57odp62QYuPQu2g&bvm=bv.72676100,d.b2U) and the Senior Center (https://www.andovermn.gov/202/Senior-Center). Andover is served by a full-time Police (https://www.andovermn.gov/187/Police) Department through a contract with the Anoka County Sheriff's Department (http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CCEQoAIwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.anokacounty.us%2Fsheriff&ei=8T_lU6OrKIO58wGV74GIDQ&usg=AFQjCNGeYIEBAkRciELhOMFtPbuGw3jG-A).
