Overview


To Hanover residents past and present, to the tens of thousands of Dartmouth College graduates around the world, and to the thousands of visitors to the town and college campus each year, Hanover is a very special place, treasured in their hearts and minds. In the early 1890s, Dartmouth's new president Reverend William Jewett Tucker laid plans for the college and the village of Hanover that guided their evolution from a sleepy New England community supporting a student population of about 350 into the modern, thriving community it is today. In the early decades of the twentieth century, beloved college President Ernest Martin Hopkins completed Dartmouth and Hanover's development into a world-renowned educational institution of over 4,000 undergraduate students, three graduate schools, and a medical center that is today esteemed around the world. Throughout these changes, however, Hanover retained the look, feel, and character of the small village it once was.
