Shawsheen Village was built in the area of Andover that was Frye Village. William Wood envisoned an entire community for the "white collar" workers of the American Woolen Company. He purchased land starting in 1906 and began construction in 1918. Within 5 years the self contained village of Shawsheen was completed. The village included residential, commerical, recreational, and industrial areas.
