Hanover Inn



The Dartmouth Hotel was opened in 1814 and was destroyed by fire in 1887. In 1888 the Trustees of Dartmouth College voted to buy the lot and to build a new hotel, since there was no longer any accommodation for alumni guests in town. The new hotel, which was called the Hotel Wheelock, was run by a lessee or by a manager appointed by the College. In 1902 the Wheelock underwent reconstruction, and its name was changed to the Hanover Inn.
