The area of Hanover was first settled by English settlers in 1649 when William Barstow, a farmer, built a bridge along the North River at what is now Washington Street. The land was the westernmost portion of the town of Scituate, and it would officially separate and be incorporated as a town in 1727.

Today, Hanover is a residential town with a wide array of businesses, schools and churches that serve the community. Notably, the newly developed Hanover Crossing is expected to open next year.
