While attending church in 1883, the Clifton Aldrich family of Dover Township heard that the trestle across Rocky River had been completed, and the first train would be traveling through to Lorain. Mr. Aldrich hitched the team to the big farm wagon. Even before the locomotive whistle was heard down the line, the Aldrich children climbed into the wagon and rode to Bassett Road to watch the first train rumble through Dover. Along with the coming of the railroad, the town of Dover needed a station stop. Dover Center Road was chosen for the site. The Depot, also known as Dover Station, was built on the north side of the tracks.

Betsey Crocker was the first school teacher in Dover Township, Ohio. Betsey taught in a log schoolhouse on the lake shore in 1816. The school stood five â€œrodsâ€ from Lake Erie on the north side of Lake Road, a 36 foot square building, never painted, and without the benefit of a fence surrounding it. A 20 foot woodshed was attached to the schoolâ€™s east side. Rows of seats lined the west, north and east walls inside the school building.
The Youth Services Department recently received a variety of new picture books and we would like to share a few.

Carlo Weisz is an Italian journalist seeking refuge in Paris with other intellectuals fleeing Mussolini's fascist government. While working as a foreign correspondent for Reuters, he becomes the editor of an underground newspaper that hopes to keep the flames of resistance alive in both countries. His efforts not only place his own life in danger, but that of the German socialite and lover he is trying to save from the Nazis. This latest espionage novel by the author of Dark Voyage and Red Gold is once again filled with atmosphere, intrigue, and romance.
In 1852 John Wilson, a graduate of Oberlin College, founded the Dover Academy as a private school for Dover Village scholars who wished an education above the eighth grade. Wilson's Academy was located about 50 feet south of where the Red Brick building now stands. Mr. Wilson retired in 1860, and since the school could not compete with free public education, it was abandoned in 1862.
In 1898 the Academy began to function as the Dover Public High School. Classes were held in one large room with four grades and two teachers. The first few classes graduated in a three year program.
