History Brief: Hopewell and Pennington Train Stations, 21 pp.
The Hopewell and Pennington train stations not only are historic National Register-listed properties, but they also are iconic symbols of our communities. Built in 1876, these stations served over 20 trains a day between Philadelphia and New York in the heyday of the railroads, before sinking into disrepair with the decline of railroad traffic into the 1980s. But the stations have since been reborn, as a private residence in Pennington and as a community park and gathering place in Hopewell Borough.
This brief discusses the history of the two train stations, describes their design and architecture, and concludes with an extensive chronology with references.
