Hopewell History Brief: The Hopewell Quarry Swimming Club, Crusher Road (c. 1920s)
The Hopewell Quarry Swim Club, west of Hopewell Borough on Crusher Road, was once the site of a rock quarry that operated from the 1890s to around 1920, making crushed stone for local roads.
By the 1920s, the quarrying had ended and the pit had filled in with water, and was beginning to be used as a local swimming hole. In the 1940s, the Quarry Swimming Club was formally established with a separate swimming pool, and then was run under a series of owners and operators until the non-profit Friends of Hopewell Quarry in 2021.
