History & History Related Items

Hanover history: A quiet, mostly residential community, Hanover was established in 1727. In its early years, the economy of the area was mainly agricultural and lumber. The nearby North River provided the means for water power and helped the town to grow. Shipbuilding there on the river became a major force in the economic structure for Hanover. They say the anchor for the U.S. Constitution was forged here. When there was a need for larger and larger ships, the river was unable to hold them, thus, shipbuilding declined in the area. Manufacturing began to spring up in the area in the late 19th century. The factories employed many of the immigrants who moved to Hanover and the surrounding area. Many of the immigrants came here from Lithuania and Poland, establishing their own settlements within Hanover.
After the Civil War, more residential areas began to spring up. Much of this development came during the 20th Century because of improvement in the road system.
The settling of Hanover: 1649
The incorporation date of Hanover: 1727
