Dover: Boston’s Suburb on the Charles

Nestled between Natick and Westwood on the southern banks of the Charles River, Dover is only fifteen miles from downtown Boston. While the town ranks among the most expensive in Massachusetts, Dover home values have been declining in recent years. According to the real estate tracker Zillow, the median home price is just over $1 million. That’s about a four percent decline compared to January of 2017.

Of course, it’s easy to see why the exclusive community of less than 6,000 residents boasts such high living costs. Not only does it offer both small-town tranquility as well as easy access to downtown Boston, but Dover’s school system also consistently ranks among the best in Massachusetts.

The Dover Demon

Thinking of hiring a Dover moving company to relocate here? Watch out for the local legend known as the “Dover Demon.”

In 1977, a teenage Bill Bartlett saw what he claimed to be an “eerie human-like creature . . . 4 feet tall with glowing orange eyes and no nose or mouth in a watermelon-shaped head.” Two more Dover teenagers, in separate accounts, also claimed to have seen a similar creature over the course of two days in April of that year.

According to a 2006 Boston Globe article, claims that the area around Dover’s Farm Street is a hotbed of supposedly paranormal activity date back more than a century. In fact, the television station Animal Planet even led a Big-Foot-style investigation into the Dover Demon.
