Hanover is filled with history and currently has 39 sites on the National Register of Historic Places or the Virginia Landmarks Register, 56 Virginia Historical Markers, and was home to Patrick Henry, the “voice of the American Revolution”, for most of his life.

Hanover was a popular overnight stop on the stagecoach route between Richmond and Williamsburg during Colonial times due to its convenient location. It is still popular today for many of the same reasons. Located just minutes outside of Richmond and only a few hours from DC it is a popular suburb for those who work in either location. Its location combined with a strong local economy, high quality of living, and festive community events are just a handful of the reasons Hanover is so highly sought-after.
