History

In 1761, Hanover was chartered by the royal governor of the Province of New Hampshire, Benning Wentworth. Hanover was then spelled as Hannover, which was subject to question. There were authorities who stated that a parish exists in Hannover in Norwich, Connecticut, whereas some suggested that the name directly came from the English Kings’ supremacy, which is the House of Hannover. In May 1765, the early inhabitant arrived, and the initial town meeting took place in 1767.

Hanover first achieved representation in 1775 in Provincial Assembly of New Hampshire by being grouped together with a number of other villages, which consisted of Enfield (formerly Relham), Lebanon, Grafton, Canaan, Orange (formerly Cardigan), and Dresden. These towns declared independence from the state of New Hampshire in 1778 and had become a part of Vermont. The Dresden Union, after much disagreement, severed their ties with the state in the year 1782, and all of the towns had become independent, including Hanover.

Area and Climate

Hanover, along with the surrounding area, is part of The Upper Valley. The term signifies a geographic region that stretches along the two sides of Connecticut River. At the center of the area are Lebanon and Hanover towns in NH and Hartford and Norwich in VT.

All towns in the Upper Valley have their unique beauty and character. Hanover boasts of the Dartmouth College and delights in the vibrant business district that you can describe as a “New England cosmopolitan”. The region provides a fantastic combination of activities, and this is all thanks to the great outdoors that include the arts and culture district, Connecticut River, the advantages of academic activities conducted at a college town, and the White and Green Mountains.

Hanover receives 37” of rain and 70” of snowfall every year. The town has 198 sunny days yearly and gets the highest temperature in July and the lowest temperature in January.
