Hanover College History Department

Welcome to the Hanover College History Department!

On April 3, 1974, a deadly tornado hit the Hanover College campus, wreaking destruction throughout the area.

With the help of donors and volunteers, the College reopened less than three weeks later, and renovations were completed by the end of the year.

We are delighted that thousands of people continue to use it every day.
