Hanover [Bentinck Township, Grey County] is a thriving post village on the Durham road, six miles east of Walkerton and on the Grey county line [between Bentinck Township, Grey County and Brant Township, Bruce County.] The Stratford and Lake Huron Railway passes through the village, which when completed will tend to make it an important shipping point for the grain and produce of the excellent farming country with which it is surrounded. The advantages for manufacturing are first-class, the Saugeen River affording an extensive water privilege, which is utilized to a considerable extent. The village is growing rapidly and will probably shortly be incorporated. First published in the “Bruce County Gazeteer and Business Directory for 1880-81” published by William W. Evans.
