In its heyday, Dover’s economy soared thanks to the manufacturing of iron, fabrics, hosiery, mill works, machine shops and more. Visitors can still see Dover’s wealth of diverse architecture and grandiose homes, but there are some surprising hidden parts to the town’s past – like its rich vaudeville history. The Dover Area Historical Society and Museum has worked tireless to protect, preserve and recognize the town’s historical structures while celebrating its lesser-known history.
Visitors can make advanced arrangements to tour the museum or drop in during one of the public Open Houses. The Society runs a variety of educational programs and entertaining presentations throughout the year.
Of Special Note:
• Dover’s history dates back to 1721
• The town was an important stop on the Morris Canal
