Dover, located in southeastern New Hampshire, is the county seat of Strafford County, and its fairly affluent population numbers a little over 30,000. Settled in 1623, Dover is the oldest permanent settlement in New Hampshire. It sits between the White Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, on the shores of the Cochecho River, and is part of the New Hampsire Seacoast region. Dover is rich in history which is evident throughout the town with some of the city’s oldest homes and buildings displaying architecture that spans several styles and eras. During the Industrial Revolution, it became a leader in the textiles and brick industry with expansive mills built throughout the town, but after the Great Depression, they all began to close. The city of Dover has renovated these historic mills which are thriving once again as homes to businesses and art galleries. CNN Money Magazine has named Dover as one of the top 100 places to live and top community for young people. It has experienced growth in the technology field and is also home to Liberty Mutual, Measured Progress, and Wentworth-Douglass Hospital.
