Since the late 1990's members have created an on-going series of pamphlets, which we call Historical Insights.

The Religious World of Benjamin Caryl III. Softcover, published 2013, by Stephen A. Marini. Money from this book is shared with the Dover Historical Commission. $15.00. Available by calling 508-785-0567 or by sending a check for $15.00 payable to the Dover Historical Society, PO Box 534, Dover, MA 02030.

The Historical Society owns many more historic documents, most notably Frank Smith's books, written prior to 1920. It is our hope to add more of these documents to this site as time and money permit. If there is a project you would like to fund, let us know and we will work with you on it.
