Hanover Things to Do

  • Veterans' Memorial

    This tasteful memorial made of bricks and stone with benches of marble on each side honours Hanover County citizens killed in hostile action from World War I through to the ongoing war on terror. There are separate stone panels listing the names of the fallen in each war. The memorial also honours each branch of service (army, navy, air force,...

  • Hanover Courthouse

    Hanover Courthouse is a fine example of colonial courthouse architecture. It was built in 1735 and it was where Patrick Henry argued the Parson's Cause case in 1763, which gave first thrust to the American revolution.

Hanover Restaurants

  • Houndstooth Cafe

    I had been meaning to come here for awhile, but I finally did it. Houndstooth has the look and feel of a simple small town cafe, but the menu is much more elabourate than a cafe you would typically find in a town this small. The menu is varied mainly between barbecue and seafood platters. The service is attentive and friendly. For the price of the...

  • not quite so upmarket, but good

    B & T Market has a hot food bar with a much bigger menu than you would expect for such an out-of-the-way convenience store not affiliated with larger chains like Uppy's, Valero, etc. The service is a little slow for the type of restaurant this is, but it is very friendly. I had the chicken tenders with fries presented in tin foil. I don't need the...

  • Hanover Cafe

    I got to be really familiar with Hanover Cafe when I had jury duty in December, 1999. It was the only real place to eat lunch. We could have driven to Ashland, but Judge Alderman only allowed an hour or an hour and a half for lunch. The atmosphere was nothing fancy, but Hanover County is not known for "fancy". Most important of all, the food was...

    Two Frogs On A Bike: antiques in Hanover

    by b1bob Written Mar 19, 2012

    Two Frogs on a Bike sounds like an opening to a long, involved joke or a silly whatnot offered at a novelty shop. It is located in what had to have been an old country store complete with tin ceiling and walls.

    What to buy: There are all manner of antiques here from old toys and baby furniture to old books, furniture, and even old-timey rotary phones that are in working order.
