Hopewell Township Historic Sites

Do you know the many historic sites in our Hopewell Valley?

The Hopewell Township Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) has helped spread the word by publishing two sets of bookmarks describing local historic properties.

The HPC published these in two sets, with sixteen bookmarks done in 2004, and a second set of eight in 2020 (with a couple expansions of the earlier set).

You can quickly browse the historic sites below, with quick summaries, and then click to see the full sets of bookmarks.

Each bookmark highlights a particular historic site, with information on its history, and whether it is listed on the National, New Jersey, and/or Hopewell Township Register of Historic Places.

Copies of the bookmarks are currently available at the Hopewell Valley Historical Society archives at the Hopewell Township branch of the Mercer County Library, and at the Hopewell Public Library.

Also see the Hopewell Township HPC website for links to more information on designated landmarks, including this map of registered Historic Districts and Historic Landmarks.
