Dover Vermont is located in Windham County, just off Route 100 in the "Southern Vermont" region of the state. First settled in 1779, the town was created from the southern half of Wardsboro, incorporated in 1810, and is located in the "Mount Snow Valley" which is also known as the "Deerfield Valley."
Originally, Dover was known as a place to go for the summer. The Ruben Snow farm was purchased in 1953 by Walter Schoenknecht of East Haven, CT and developed into the Mount Snow Ski Area on Mt. Pisgah. Eventually, vacation homes became popular near the base of the mountain. An airport and golf course were built, and Mount Snow's Golf School was established in the 1970's.
