Hanover, an incorporated city of Washington county, is situated 12 miles northeast of Washington, the county seat, at the junction of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy and the St. Joseph & Grand Island railroads, which makes it an important shipping point for a rich agricultural district. The town was laid out in the spring of 1869 by G. H. Hollenberg. It was incorporated as a city of the third class in July, 1872. Mr. Hollenberg died on July 1, 1874, and left $600 for the purpose of building a city hall, provided the citizens would raise $1,000. The money was secured without difficulty and the hall was built in 1875. Hanover has electric lights, waterworks, public and Catholic schools, 2 banks, 2 weekly newspapers (the Democrat-Enterprise and the Herald), an international money order postoffice with four rural routes, express, telegraph and telephone facilities, a bottling works, a number of good mercantile establishments, hotels, etc. The population was 1,039 in 1910.
