With Money Magazine ranking Dover, New Hampshire as one of the top 100 places to live in the country, Dover has been earning recognition as a dynamic city that has it all: thriving businesses, expanding arts and cultural scene, a wide selection of dining establishments, a notable history, a strong sense of community, and beautiful scenery.
Settled in 1623, Dover is the oldest continuous settlement in New Hampshire and seventh oldest in the United States. The city of Dover has a long and colorful history spanning nearly four centuries. Its earliest days as a colonial seaport led to a successful shipbuilding industry in the 1700s, and it flourished in the 19th century as the nation's leading manufacturer of cotton goods. The development of a brick industry spanned decades of successful mill operations through the middle of the 20th century. Dover's renaissance as a thriving, competitive community continues today.
