General Ebenezer Brewster, whose home occupied the present site of the Inn, founded the Dartmouth Hotel in 1780 but later burned to the ground and was replaced two years later on the same site by the Wheelock Hotel. From 1901 – 1903, Dartmouth College carried out extensive renovations to the facility, which was then renamed the Hanover Inn. An east wing was added in 1924, followed in 1939 by an exterior expansion . In 1968 a west wing was added. Today the Hanover Inn is a charming, 93 room neo-Georgian structure that is owned by Dartmouth College. The Inn is located on the Hanover Green and the Dartmouth College Campus.
The Hanover Inn has a full service event planning and catering department, and seven conference spaces in a variety of sizes to accommodate most needs. The Daniel Webster Room can host your wedding or private party for up to 175 people while our smaller conference rooms are perfect for a business meeting, dinner or reception. We have seven meeting rooms available for groups from 2 to 250.
