Gemini/GMOS-N has been used to acquire visible spectra at six epochs between 2004 August and 2006 July, following the evolution of the SN from age 661 to 1358-days. Few optical spectra of Type II supernovae with ages greater than 1yr exist. In addition, g', r', and i' images were acquired at all six epochs. The spectral and photometric evolution of SN 2002hh has been very unusual. Measures of the brightness of this SN, both in the R and I bands, as well as in the Halpha emission flux, show no significant fading over an interval of nearly 2-years. Description: Spectroscopy was obtained using the Gemini North telescope and the GMOS-N instrument during semesters 2004B, 2005B, and 2006A. Three spectra of duration 900s each were obtained on 2004 August 20. Two additional epochs for SN 2002hh in 2004 were obtained using Director's Discretionary (DD) time. On 2004 October 8, three spectra, each of 720 s duration.
