Moving to Dover
Dover is a midsize town located on New Jersey's Rockaway River, just over 30 miles from New York City. It's home to a very diverse population, with a growing Hispanic community calling the town home. Dover has a fairly small geographical footprint at less than 3 square miles, but it packs plenty of amenities into its boundaries.
In 1713, Joseph Latham received a large portion of land in western New Jersey as part of a land deed. He then passed on 500 acres to John Jackson, who developed one of the first settlements on the land that would eventually become Dover.
The area was known for its plentiful supply of iron ore, which could be picked directly off the ground at Dickerson Mine at the nearby Mine Hill. A forge was established to process the ore into bars, which were transported to many of the East Coast's flourishing industrial centers. However, when the British passed the Iron Act, it created many challenges for the industry. John Jackson's financial success crumbled, and he was focused to declare bankruptcy. The land was purchased by Hartshorne Fitz Randolph, eventually becoming part of Randolph Township.
In 1869, Dover was incorporated as a town, considered part of Randolph Township. By 1896, the town had become an independent entity, reincorporating as a city. However, after the passing of a city referendum, Dover returned to town status in 1899.
Things to Do in Dover
Dover retains a quaint feel despite its easy access to larger metropolitan areas, due mainly to the pre-World War II architecture that gives the town historical appeal. Popular local attractions include the Baroque Orchestra of New Jersey and the Community Children's Museum.
The Blackwell Street Historic District is a particular highlight of Dover. Considered one of the most important industrial towns in Morris County, this area has buildings that span 100 years of American architecture. The streets date back to 1812, when the village had just 12 homes and an iron works.
Dover is also home to many parks and recreation areas. JFK Park hosts several community events, including the annual Christmas tree lighting, the Easter egg hunt and the summer concert series.
Dover Public School District oversees the public schools of Dover and a few neighboring communities.
Dover is also home to a unique post-secondary school, The Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art. Founded in the 1970s, it's the only accredited cartooning and graphic arts school in the country.
