The mission of the “Faces of Dover” project is to seek out, record, and archive “public memories” of Dover through written narratives, audio and video recordings of citizens, web-based social commentary tools, and photography.
Our city’s collective recollections about Dover’s past centuries will supplement existing archival material, fill in gaps in paper sources, and help our community define and explain present conditions and institutions. Our goal is to collect not only what is already known, but also other information, observations and opinions unavailable elsewhere.
The www.FacesOfDover.org site houses the Dover, NH wiki. The Wiki is available for everyone to share, document and describe the people (yourself included) and events that have been and are a part of the community. We encourage you to participate and become part of our open sharing community.
The Faces Of Dover walking tour showcase community members and their stories about life in Dover in poster form. Each poster incorporates a story of their life accompanied by a collage of photos from yesteryear. Topics range from life on the farm to the glory days of the “Golden Girls” of Harvey’s Coffee Shop. Walking tour brochures can be found at the Greater Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center and various downtown Dover businesses.
