Haggett's Pond Establishment

Moses Haggett came from Ipswich to Andover in 1650, and in 1679 owned land near what was then called Blanchard’s Pond. Haggett acquired the rights for one of the pond’s island in 1720, and later bought up tracts of Blanchard land, at which time he changed the name of the pond from Blanchard’s Pond to Haggett’s Pond.
