The Upper Valley of New Hampshire

The Town of Hanover and surrounding region is part of what is known as “The Upper Valley.” This designation refers to a geographic area stretching along both sides of the Connecticut River in central New Hampshire and Vermont. At the region’s center are the towns of Hanover and Lebanon in New Hampshire and Norwich and Hartford (White Rive Junction) in Vermont.

Each Upper Valley town has its own distinctive character and beauty. Hanover is home to Dartmouth College (one of the Ivy League colleges and the ninth oldest college in the nation) and enjoys a lively, ‘New England Cosmopolitan’ business district. Lebanon is home to the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center as well as several of the region’s largest businesses.

The area offers an incredible mix of activities, thanks to the great outdoors, including the Connecticut River, the White and Green Mountains, the arts and culture community and the benefits of intellectual activities found in a college town.
