Located between the White Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, the city of Dover was one of the first to be settled in the country. Dover’s earliest days as a colonial seaport led to a success in the industries of shipbuilding, cotton goods, and bricks. Dover's renaissance as a thriving, competitive community continues today.
Dover’s school system is exceptional and top-notch medical facilities. The city has outstanding parks and recreation services, and overlooks the Cochecho River downtown and Bellamy and Piscataqua Rivers on the outskirts. The downtown area reflects the city's mill heritage, with a modern bustle of shoppers and a thriving business community.
Dover harbors a local airport and is just a few minutes to the University of New Hampshire or Pease International Tradeport. Dover is a quick commute to the metropolitan area of Boston, and less than an hour's drive to Boston's Logan International Airport.
