Welcome to Andover Township, New Jersey

Andover Township’s message is "Experience the Good Life". We are proud to offer a fine quality of life and work hard to maintain that designation. Andover Township’s 21 square miles of beautiful country life is home to just 6,500 residents. Although rural in nature, we are located only 40 miles northwest of NYC, and have quick access to major thoroughfares, enabling residents and businesses to connect to a third of the United States population in one day's drive. We are working diligently to insist the best internet services are provided for the telecommuter, home business owner and of most recent, the virtual classroom.

Our Township is full of locally owned and operated businesses. In fact, we have more than 100 businesses in our community, ranging from technology, medical professionals, financial advisors and institutions to auto shops, health food stores and farms. We are proud to offer family owned restaurants featuring everything from bagels to pizza to fine dining. A farm to table program has also been established, including local artisan bread, cheeses and produce. Additionally, we are located within 10 minutes of a state-of-the-art hospital and have convenience to five supermarkets within a 15-minute drive.

Andover Township boasts a high-performance public education system, and is only 5 minutes from private schools, including Reverend George A. Brown Memorial Elementary School and Pope John XXIII Regional High School. Additionally, Sussex County Community College is only a 10-minute drive.

In its surroundings, you will find miles of beautiful and scenic hiking trails, glacial lakes and limestone outcroppings protected by deeply rooted environmental oversight. For the outdoor enthusiast, we are just a short drive from other venues offering skiing, kayaking, fishing and canoeing.

We are a Township which encourages businesses both small and large so dreams of all generations can be pursued. We strive to provide a stable tax base, with the ability to maintain low taxes to support our Schools, Police Department, Volunteer Fire Department, Emergency Medical Services and Township infrastructure, making for a safe and progressive environment.

Come “Experience the Good Life" with us in Andover Township!
