From the moment in 1770 when Reverend Eleazar Wheelock located Dartmouth College in Hanover, the “College on the Hill” and the “Village at the College” have been inseparably linked as one. And from the time when the first log hut was constructed to the present, the built and natural environments have evolved as part of an organic evolutionary process. Due to changing architectural tastes, neglect and growth, many of the historic buildings that once flourished are no longer standing. Bygone landmarks like the beautiful entry porte-cochere at the Mary Hitchcock Memorial Hospital and the handful of handsome buildings that marked the start of the University of New Hampshire are now lost to history. Join architect and historian Jay Barrett as he uncovers the stories behind the forgotten treasures of Hanover.

Frank J. “Jay” Barrett Jr. is a second-generation practicing architect who grew up in the “Village at the College” in Hanover, New Hampshire. As a young boy, he watched many of the buildings that he has written about be built or “lost” as part of a changing village and college campus. Jay was trained in architecture and structural engineering at Wentworth Institute in Boston. Increasingly, Jay’s architectural practice includes historic preservation work, and his home is a restored former Boston & Maine Railroad station located at Ely, Vermont, that has been placed in the National Register of Historic Places.
