The Dover Public Library website offers public access to a wide range of information, including historical materials that are products of their particular times, and may contain values, language or stereotypes that would now be deemed insensitive, inappropriate or factually inaccurate. However, these records reflect the shared attitudes and values of the community from which they were collected and thus constitute an important social record.

The materials contained in the collection do not represent the opinions of the City of Dover, or the Dover Public Library.

William Moore House

William Moore house
5 Lexington Street

Lot #2 was purchased by William Moore in 1885. He was in the dry goods business and operated stores in both Dover and Rochester. Mr. Moore built the house that is now on the lot in 1889 and lived there until 1923 when he sold the house to George J. Foster and moved to 171 Washington Street. George Foster did not live in the house but rented it to others.
