What makes Dover great?

As the oldest, permanent settlement in New Hampshire, and the seventh oldest in the nation, Dover has a long history of community building. Whether it's the settlers who built the first garrisons, the merchants who moved goods across the globe in gundalows and ships, the immigrants who formed a foundation in Dover's once-booming mills, or the 21st-century businesses that now call Dover home, the city remains a destination. Whether it's new industry, an active arts community, new restaurants, civic leaders, recreation and culture, or the amazing people who call Dover home, here you will discover why what is "Made in Dover" is unique.



Dover's hidden treasure and one-of-a-kind museum, The Woodman Museum, opened for the season on April 4. If you haven't yet checked it out, here's a sneak peek.
