Dover Minnesota Community Guide


Location:

Welcome to Dover Minnesota!

Location of Dover, Minnesota

Dover is located in SE Minnesota, nestled between Eyota and St. Charles MN. Dover is conveniently close to Rochester MN as well. In 2000 the population was 438, and as the town continues to grow and develop, so does the population. The City of Dover is located in Olmsted County and is bordered by Interstate 90, County Road 10, and Highway 14. Through the valley at the north edge of town runs the Whitewater River. From tree-lined streets to newly developed subdivisions - Dover is the epitamy of small-town living.

History:  

DOVER Township, originally named Whitewater in 1858 for its river flowing east into Winona County, was organized in May 1859, being then renamed for Dover in New Hampshire, whence some of its settlers came. The city of this name in sections 21 and 22, platted in the spring of 1869, was at first called Dover Center, from its location at the center of this township; it was incorporated as a village on December 22, 1908, and separated from the township on February 26, 1909; the post office, established in 1858, was known for a time as Dover Centre.
