One of the most important aspects of the Hopewell Valley Historical Society's mission is collecting and preserving material related to Hopewell Valley's rich heritage.
The Hopewell Valley Historical Society's collections are housed at a research room in the Hopewell Township branch of the Mercer County Library system at 245 Pennington-Titusville Road, Pennington, NJ 08534 (next to the Hopewell Valley Central High School). The room is staffed on Fridays, from noon to 4:45 pm. If you would like to visit, or know more, please send an e-mail to email@example.com or leave a message at the reference desk of the library. The Society is grateful to the County and to the outstanding librarians and staff for accommodating us.
From time to time HVHS accepts donations from organizations who are de-accessioning items of historical interest from their collection, or have records pertaining to a club or group that operated within Hopewell Valley.
Below is a list of historical material from our collections that is available to the public for research. To inquire about these or other items , send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
