Faces of Dover is a community organization which conserves local history about Dover, New Hampshire. Affiliated with Dover Main Street , a 501c3 organization, Faces of Dover was formed in 2009 by a group of volunteers wanting to capture local history through family roots and stories. The group’s initial project included putting some faces to the names of 2nd and 3rd generation businesses throughout the Garrison City with the idea of creating foot traffic in the community,
Faces of Dover launched a display of photographs and narratives throughout the city and created a walking tour that showcased community members and their stories about life in Dover in poster form. Each poster incorporated a story of their life accompanied by a collage of photos from yesteryear. Topics range from life on the farm to the glory days of the “Golden Girls” of Harvey’s Coffee Shop, hanging out at Buck’s Cafe, students from the inner-city attending Dover High School, as well as individual citizens,
Our current project entailed the restoration and supplementing the free-standing historical markers, mounted on pedestals & posts throughout the city, many of which had deteriorated or were missing. Enjoy the tour. Click here to download a map.
