Hanoverton is home to the historic Spread Eagle Tavern, an inn/restaurant which has been visited by Abraham Lincoln, Dan Quayle, Dick Cheney, and most recently John McCain, who was campaigning for the 2008 Presidential race at the town's school United Local High School.
Hanoverton was laid out in 1813, and incorporated as a village in 1836. Hanoverton experienced growth in the 1830s by the building of the Sandy and Beaver Canal through the town, but by the late 1840s, the canal was no longer profitable and the town declined.
In 1977 a 23-acre area of Hanoverton was added to the National Register of Historic Places as the Hanoverton Canal Town District. The district is noted for canal-era architecture which is largely unchanged since construction in the mid-1800s.
