Hopewell Valley is rich in history, but it's not unique. Thousands of small towns, villages and communities just like ours are spread across the country.
What does set this community apart are the people who have lived here and the acomplishments they've made during their lifetimes. Many aspects of their lives are still with us today. The fine homes, old farmsteads, churches, schools and commercial buildings they built still stand.
This past comes alive through their personal stories. The events that took place here and how they shaped the lives of local residents helps us to better understand our past.
Since its organization in 1975 the Hopewell Valley Historical Society has published a newsletter that includes many well researched articles and lots of interesting stories pertaining to Hopewell Valley's rich history. This beautifully designed periodical has kept society members informed for generations.
