Dover: prosperous and progressive Ohio city
Dover was founded by two brothers-in-law who took a horseback trip from Baltimore, Maryland, in 1802 and liked the fertile plateau they found at the confluence of the Tuscarawas River and Sugarcreek. They were Jesse Slinguff and Christian Deardorff who found the site where they later started Dover.
Dover today is a prosperous and progressive Ohio city with a almost perfect balance of industrial, commercial and agricultural activity. The Tuscarawas County Fairgrounds and Union Hospital are located in the City. Points of tourist interest includes Dover Dam, key dam of the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District, and the Warther Museum and the J. E. Reeves Home and Museum.
