Dover: A Historic Community on the NH Seacoast
Dating back to the early 1600s, the little town of Dover has seen a lot of history throughout its long years. It was first a colonial seaport, then the nation’s leading manufacturer of cotton goods, then a successful brick milling town in the mid 20th century. Today, it’s one of New Hampshire’s fastest-growing towns, as well as one of the state’s favorite Seacoast communities. Come explore Dover and discover all that it has to offer—from exceptional schools to outstanding parks to a charming Downtown along the Cocheco River.
