Dover, New Hampshire

Dover, New Hampshire is a thriving city located on the Cocheco and Bellamy Rivers, both of which empty into the Atlantic-bound Piscataqua River.  With residents numbering near 30,000, Dover stands proud among the many seacoast towns that have not grown nearly so large.  Dover’s history can be traced back over 380 years and the town stands as the oldest permanent settlement in New Hampshire and the 7th oldest in the United States.

Dover was one of the first three communities to appear in what would eventually become the state of New Hampshire.  First settled beside the Piscataqua River in 1623, the area was called Hilton’s Point, for Edward Hilton, a prominent land owner who once held the rights to a great deal of land in the region.  In short time, the town became a popular trading center, mainly due to its great location on the river and in 1637 was finally named Dover.  The town had its own independent government until 1641 when the region was annexed to Massachusetts.  Eventually returned to NH status in 1741 with the re-establishment of provincial New Hampshire, Dover continued its growth and was incorporated as a city in 1855.

Today Dover stands as a city of high-tech manufacturing, cultural arts and commercial industry.  Dover offers plenty of opportunities for employment, continued education as well as family entertainment and recreation.  The Wentworth Douglas Hospital in the center of town boasts top-notch medical services at their always-expanding, state-of-the-art facility.  Dover has several routes in and out of town, including the Spaulding Turnpike which leads straight north to the White Mountain National Forest or south to Portsmouth.  Air travel is a convenient ten minutes away at the Pease International Tradeport, so traveling around the country is easy when you live in town.  Dover is home to stores by the dozen, including a Hannaford’s, Shaw’s and countless fine and casual dining restaurants.  Dover is a Main Street Community with a rich history that is reflected in the brick buildings that have been lovingly restored and converted into small shops and stores along Dover’s city center.  Riverwalks are popular in town as are strolls through the several parks that dot the Dover landscape.

Dover operates its own school system as a member of SAU# 12.  Dover educates its elementary school age children at three separate elementary schools, the Garrison School, the Horne Street School or the Woodman Park Elementary School.  Students in grades five through eight attend the Dover Middle School, while high school age children attend Dover High School.

Dover is a city that doesn’t seem like a city – it’s clean, quiet and friendly.  If you enjoy city living without the headaches that normally accompany doing so, try Dover, New Hampshire.  For more information on this historic little city, call Jim Miller Bean Group at (603) 801-3987.  We’d be happy to answer any questions regarding Dover or any other town in this wonderful state.  Call us today and start living the New Hampshire dream.
