Welcome To Hanover Township

Here you will find valuable information about the Township and its services. This website was designed to make it easier and more efficient for residents and other visitors to interact with the Township. We hope you find the site's content to be both interesting and informative.

Hanover Township was formed from the southern portion of Allen Township by decree of the Bucks County Court in 1798. Its geographic limits at that time included the present area plus that which comprises Hanover Township, Northampton County, and the area immediately south of the current Township to the Lehigh River. This original territory was retained until 1812 when Lehigh County was established and the Township was divided; approximately two-thirds of its area went to Lehigh County and one-third remained in Northampton County.
