VIEW CALENDAR
The Hanover Inn Dartmouth was once the home of General Ebenezer Brewster, who became Dartmouth College steward in 1769. In 1780 Brewster redesigned his home and converted it into a flourishing tavern. In 1813, General Brewster's son, Amos, had the tavern moved to another site and initiated construction of a much larger building, which became known as the Dartmouth Hotel. Two years later the Wheelock Hotel was erected, and in 1901 the College began an extensive two-year reconstruction and remodeling of the hotel grounds and facilities.
 
Upon its completion, the new building was named the Hanover Inn. Throughout the years, the Hanover Inn Dartmouth has undergone many changes while still retaining its charm and ties to Dartmouth College. Today, this Hanover, NH hotel is renowned for delivering gracious service, timeless elegance and personalized amenities immersed in the Ivy League tradition.
