New Dover was originally called Dover, and under the latter name was laid out and platted in 1854.[4] The New Dover Post Office was established on February 5, 1856.[5] As of 1877, the village did a considerable amount of manufacturing business. It contained one church, a school-house, one harness shop, one blacksmith shop, and several other stores.[6] The post office was discontinued on April 30, 1935. The mail service is now sent through the Marysville branch.[5]
