The Sachem Village was constructed to meet the post war commitments to returning Dartmouth sailors and soldiers, post World War 2. Located on Lebanon Street on today's Hanover High Soccer field and Hover Lane. These prebuilt houses formed a close knit community of married students and their young families.
Sachem Village was returned to the Hanover School district from Dartmouth and returned to use as a playing field
