Dover, Massachusetts, USA

Dover, Norfolk, MA

Dover’s history goes back over 350 years. It was first settled around 1635 and was originally part of the Dedham Grant. Prior to its incorporation as a Town, the area was named Springfield because it was predominantly a farming community with open fields centered around the "bubbling springs" of Trout Brook. It was incorporated as a Town in 1836. The chairman of the Springfield Parish committee chose the name "Dover" in honor of his ancestral home in England. doverma.org
