Dover’s original historical society disbanded in 2008 after 108 years in existence. Recently, a group of Dover citizens have determined that it should be revived. There will be a meeting of the new Dover Historical Society at the Dover Public Library on Monday, February 11 at 7pm. Anyone interested in local history is urged to attend this organizational gathering to share ideas and concepts for reconstituting this essential group.
In just four years, Dover will be celebrating its 400th anniversary. Dover was the first permanent settlement in New Hampshire, in 1623, and is the seventh oldest community in the United States. Meeting organizers believe that a city with as much history as Dover needs to have an active and vital historical society to preserve and promote our four centuries of existence. Please join us in reconstituting this significant organization! For more information, call the Dover Public Library at 603-516-6050.
