About the HVHS
The Hopewell Valley Historical Society was formed in 1975 by a group of citizens interested in preserving the rich heritage of the Hopewell Valley. We collect and preserve items relating to Hopewell Valley, sponsor public events to share our history, and encourage the preservation of historic sites.
Hopewell Valley Historical Society is an independent non-profit organization of volunteers, funded primarily by membership. Membership benefits include advance notice of events, our quarterly newsletter, volunteer opportunities, and special members-only events.
In addition to membership, the Hopewell Valley Historical Society welcomes donations from individuals and organizations to help support our ongoing work to help keep local history alive.
