What To Know About Hanover, New Hampshire

Nestled in New Hampshire’s quaint Upper Valley on the picturesque Vermont border, this lively enclave of classic colonial architecture is home to the prestigious Ivy League Dartmouth College, established in 1769 and chartered before the American Revolution. The College’s presence, along with the associate Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, adds world-class cultural, lifestyle, and healthcare amenities to the small-town vibe.

The Hopkins Center for the Arts offers film, dance and theatrical productions, and the Hood Museum of Art is a renowned college art museum housing a collection drawn from a wide range of cultures and historical periods. Recreation opportunities abound, from exploring the Connecticut River via the Ledyard Canoe Club to skiing the slopes at the nearby Dartmouth Skiway. And undergrads aren't the only beneficiaries of educational opportunities at Dartmouth; The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute features programming in history, art, science and much more.

The Dresden School District, the interstate school district serving both Hanover and Norwich, Vermont, was the first, and remains one of the few, interstate school districts in the nation. Hanover High School is consistently ranked in the top 3 of New Hampshire public high schools.

From fine dining at the Hanover Inn  to taking in a late fall college football game at Memorial Field, Hanover offers some of the best that Upper Valley living has to offer.
