Faces of Dover is a community organization which conserves local history about Dover, New Hampshire. Affiliated with Dover Main Street Program, Faces of Dover was formed in 2008 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. The year long project created 13 posters that were place in area businesses and included a map to guide the visitor to each poster.
In 2013 the committee reconvened and undertook the refurbishment of the historic markers that were installed downtown in the early 1990’s by Dover Main Street and expanded the number of markers & posters to include several additional notable events and sites.
