The Town of Dartmouth was incorporated in 1873. Dartmouth became a City in 1961. It was independently governed by the Dartmouth Town Council until 1996 when it was amalgamated, along with the Towns of Bedford, City of Halifax and Halifax County, into the Halifax Regional Municipality.

Prior to 1931 the Mayor was chosen from amongst the elected councillors by a vote of council. The first directly elected Mayor was Walter Mosher.
