Hanover Township is one of thirty townships in Cook County, Illinois, USA located at the end of the county's panhandle. As of the 2010 census, its population was 99,538.[1] Hanover Township was first established on April 2, 1850. [2] The first reported population of the Township was 672. The Township gets its name from the "Kingdom of Hanover in Western Germany," which is where a majority of the Township's first residents originated from. [3]
The primary governmental concerns were collecting taxes, control and collection of stray animals and maintenance of the roads. "Poor relief" was minimal in the early days of the Township and the Clerk was in control of organizing the machinery for elections, similar to the job they do today. [4]
Today, Hanover Township has a population of over 100,000 residents. [5] Most of Streamwood lies within the boundaries of the Township, along with portions of Bartlett, Elgin, Hanover Park, Hoffman Estates, Schaumburg and unincorporated Cook County. [6] Township offices are set throughout the Township with the Township Town Hall at 250 S. IL Route 59 in Bartlett, the Senior Center at 240 S. IL Route 59 in Bartlett, the Astor Avenue Community Center at 7431 Astor Avenue in Hanover Park, the Community Resource Center at 1535 Burgundy Place in Streamwood and the Izaak Walton Center at 899 Jay Street in Elgin.
