33 – Settlers

This marker celebrates Dover’s 400th Anniversary since its colonial settlement in 1623. It attributes much of the success of the new colony to our proximity to two rivers that flowed to the sea. Fishing, mast-cutting, sawmills, and trade with other countries made for a prosperous town. Later, large cotton mills would use waterpower to produce millions of yards of textiles, and local brickyards manufactured bricks for use all over New England.
