Town of Hanover

Hanover SealIncorporated in 1727, the early economy of Hanover was based on agriculture and lumbering. By the 18th century, the town was one of the major industrial centers of this region with an abundance of waterpower resources and a shipbuilding complex.

Residents of this now pastorial/suburban community are proud of the Four Corners section, which has retained the heritage and character of the village of yesteryear.
