Horner Health and Recreation Center

The Horner Health and Recreation Center supports the Hanover community’s pursuit of recreational and intercollegiate sports, physical fitness and state-of-the-art athletic training program. Opened in 1995, the Horner Center is named in honor of Dr. John Horner, President of Hanover College from 1958-1987 and his wife, Anne.
