North Andover Soldier’s Monument


Locally referred to as the ‘Minuteman’ this monument is based on Kitson’s Newburyport statue of ‘The Volunteer’. The North Andover figure however maintains a different pose to its predecessor, as he appears to be stepping forward with his rifle ready in his arms, rather than casually slung over one shoulder. The monument was repeatedly postponed, till 1912 when it was decided that it should also commemorate soldiers from North Andover who fought in other wars. The monument bears no inscription except for that of Kitson’s name and the Gorham Co. founder’s mark.
