Bessie Goldsmith notes a stagecoach route through Andover in 1776. There was not a regular stagecoach route through Andover until the early 1800's with the building of the the Essex Turnpike, popularly known as the Andover Turnpike. It began at the New Hampshire border and proceeded through Haverhill, Andover, and Danvers. The end of the line was Salem, the county seat.
