Woodman Institute Mus
Fans of quirky, unique little museums will be absolutely delighted with Dover's Woodman Institute, which holds an impressive and singular collection dedicated to natural history, art, and local history. The museum is characterized by its historical accuracy, not just in what it offers, but in how its collection is presented. Rather than being continually updated, this museum has preserved much of its original displays, giving insight into the way people thought in the early 20th century. In addition to natural history specimens, this museum complex includes four buildings, including a wooden garrison dating back to the American Revolution.
Garrison Hill Park an
There is a long history associated with the Garrison Hill Tower, which has seen three total iterations since its inception in the late 1800s. The original tower was wooden, but it burnt down, only to be replaced by a steel tower in 1913. That steel tower was demolished in the early 1990s due to safety concerns, but a dedicated team of local volunteers rebuilt a much safer structure in 1993, resurrecting this traditional town landmark. The purpose of this tower through all its versions has been to give Dover locals and visitors the chance to enjoy the amazing view of the White Mountains.
