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.

In 1878 Charles Murphy sold this lot to Maria Tasker for $1000 and Charles W. Tasker began living here until 1898. He was a dentist who had set up practice in Dover about 1869. Dr. Tasker died in 1923, but the house had been sold in 1919 to Fred Ireland. Fred’s widow Nellie sold it in 1930 to Fred Richardson, an insurance agent.
