Hanover is a town in the Canadian province of Ontario, located in southern Grey County, west of Durham and east of Walkerton on Grey/Bruce Road 4. Hanover marks the border between Grey County and Bruce County.
The first settler in Hanover was Abraham Buck, who in 1849, turned west from the Garafraxa road at Durham with his travelling companion Mr. Jasper. After travelling approximately 11 miles, they came across the Saugeen River. Apparently claiming, "It is good for us to be here," Buck staked his land claim near a jam of logs and debris which provided a risky bridge for travellers and which became known as Buck's Crossing.
The next settler, Christian Hassenjager, arrived a few weeks later. He built his home just south of the current Community Centre. His daughter Hannah was the first white child to be born in the area.
There is currently a population of 7,147 resident
