A Proud History, a Dynamic Present and a Challenging Future
Time immemorial Ice dams within the Purcell trench at the mouth of the Clarks Fork River release walls of water from Lake Missoula leaving it’s mark on the area now know as Dover.
This small bedroom community is located in the Panhandle of Idaho in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. Since incorporation in 1988, we have grown from a few concerned citizens to a city with a population over 550 with a spirit of community. Dover provides a unique quality of life to families and individuals looking for the small town life, with easy access to larger cities such as Sandpoint. Although we are predominately a bedroom community, we realize the need to diversify our local economy.
