Designated a “village center,” Hopewell Borough is small in size, rich in history and full of good-spirited local flavor. Much of the borough has been designated a historic district and after taking a short walk through town, you’ll see why. As borough residents, we exchange services with the surrounding Hopewell Township, yet we retain the sense of community that only a small town can foster. Our children walk to the beautiful Hopewell Elementary School each day, greeted by crossing guards who know them by name. We hold many traditional annual family events and our residents are diverse in ages and incomes, races and religions.


For nearby recreation, hike the Sourland Mountain Preserve and understand why Charles Lindbergh, from an aerial view, chose to build his home in Hopewell. Jog or bike along one of the many area trails. Bird watch or take an art course at the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association. Enjoy fresh vegetables as a CSA member of the Watershed organic farm. Get involved in one of the many community groups. Whatever you choose to do, you’ll be doing it with friends.


Incorporated in 1891, Hopewell is a town of 2,000 in-borough residents, with an additional 2,000 who consider the borough to be their community. It has been featured in New Jersey Monthly magazine as one of the “10 best small towns in NJ” and one of the “25 best places to call home in the Garden State,” and the writer notes “there is more to Hopewell than a quaint veneer. The population … is genuinely friendly. And with topflight schools, the town has become a magnet for young families.” As part of the Hopewell Valley Regional School System, whose high school was voted in the top half of the best 75 public high schools in New Jersey, the Hopewell Elementary School is a major draw.
