Hanson was founded in 1869 and became a bustling hub of commerce at the peak of the railroad era. In 1889, a fire swept through the town’s commercial district. The present buildings in the Hanson Historic District date back to the period of reconstruction in the 1890s to early 1900s. Relish the charm of these turn-of-the-century buildings that today house quaint shops and restaurants.
