Our members care deeply about history. They understand that history provides a framework for fuller understanding of the present and future, and have shown their commitment to preserving history by joining the Society. HVHS protects and shares history in a number of ways. We maintain an archivally preserved collection of local historical documents and photographs which has been made possible by donations from members of the local community. We make history vital and accessible through programs and newsletters, and by taking part in community events. We provide scholarships for local high school history scholars, and we place interpretive signage throughout the region to point out historic sites.
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. We rely upon the generosity of our community members to continue the work of preserving and sharing history of Hopewell Valley.
