In the late 1850’s two adventurous brothers left Germany to find a better life for themselves. One of them found himself homesteaded on 160 acres on the Crow River and wrote to his brother to come join him. They eventually named the city after its German counterpart and their birthplace Hannover. The city incorporated in 1891.
One of the city’s important landmarks, the 1885 historic bridge, hosts many unique community events. The Crow River flows under the bridge and through the city’s center.
