Hanover is a town in Hanover Township, Jefferson County, Indiana, along the Ohio River. The population was 3,546 at the 2010 census. Hanover is the home of Hanover College, a small Presbyterian liberal arts college. Hanover is also the home of Southwestern High School. The "Point," located on the campus of Hanover College, is the only place along the Ohio River that three bends can be viewed in the river.

First settled in 1809 by Williamson Dunn and known as Dunn's Settlement, the name was later changed to South Hanover sometime around 1820. After the town of Hanover in Shelby County, Indiana ceased to be a post office, South Hanover in Jefferson County dropped the "South" and became known as Hanover.
