Manitoba Communities: Hanover (Rural Municipality)
This municipality was probably named Hanover (“high bank” in German) for the city in Germany.
The municipality shared administrative officers (Reeve, Treasurer, Clerk, and Assessor) with the Rural Municipality of Hespeler until the latter was dissolved around 1891.
