The Downtown Hopewell group (@downtownhopewell) has just released a new Shop Hopewell brochure promoting the support of local businesses. It has a nice Explore Hopewell Borough map highlighting all the great places to shop and eat in town, plus the other side provides more details on local stores.

It’s fun to see these kinds of inventive approaches to doing local maps – for different purposes (municipalities, business groups, house tours), in different styles (playful to formal), and with different annotations (businesses, historical, municipal, house tour).
- The colorful 2016 Hopewell Borough 125th Anniversary map by Emily Muschinske is drawn in a friendly style, and still crams in an amazing amount of detail on historic and borough sites, local dining, services, and shops & studios.
- The 2010 Hopewell Borough Business Association map is simple and clean, and lists 63 members plus other local points of interest, with some photos.
- The 2015 Pennington 125th Anniversary Historic House Tour map shows the downtown area of the walking tour route through the center of town.
- The older 1990 Pennington 100th Anniversary HVHS House Tour map is more precise, showing a wider area of Pennington, from Route 31 to the Stony Brook, and is drawn to scale.
- The more official 1999 Hopewell Borough Town map from the 1999 municipal brochure has a line map of the town, with an inset of the larger Township area down past Trenton.
- Finally, the much older 1966 Hopewell Township Jaycee-ettes Spring House Tour map shows the tour route between Pennington and Hopewell, with key roads and streams plus some locations including Centerville and Glenmore.
