Hanoverton is a village in Hanover Township, Columbiana County, Ohio, United States. The population was 354 at the 2020 census. Hanoverton is located in the Salem, OH Micropolitan Statistical Area.


Hanoverton was laid out in 1813, and incorporated as a village in 1836. Hanoverton experienced growth in the 1830s by the building of the Sandy and Beaver Canal through the town, but by the late 1840s, the canal was no longer profitable and the town declined.

In 1977 a 23-acre area of Hanoverton was added to the National Register of Historic Places as the Hanoverton Canal Town District. The district is noted for canal-era architecture which is largely unchanged since construction in the mid-1800s.

Hanoverton also played its part in the Underground Railroad. At least one old home has a hidden room and the old Spread Eagle Tavern has an underground tunnel that goes between two buildings. This tunnel is still functional today
