The Dover Historical Society is a non-profit organization which operates on funds received from memberships and donations. Without donations from residents and friends of Dover, we could not fulfill our mission to preserve and exhibit our history.

The mission of the Dover Historical Society, since its founding in 1895, has been to collect, preserve and exhibit objects and documents that relate to the history of our town and its New England setting.

The town and its residents are fortunate that there are three remarkable buildings under  Society care. These are the 18th century Caryl Farm with period displays, next to its Fisher Barn containing agricultural tools. The brick Federal Style Sawin Museum overlooking the pre-Revolutionary Old Training Field across to the Town Hall completes the list. Good stewardship means that our buildings and collections require maintenance. The operating expenses of the Dover Historical Society, excluding maintenance of the Sawin Museum and Caryl Farm, are over $20,000 which we must raise annually.

We sincerely hope that you will support our efforts.
