Surrounded by Hopewell Township and located in Mercer County, home to the State Capitol of Trenton, Hopewell Borough has the best of all worlds. It’s a quick trip to both New York City and Philadelphia, with train service from Princeton Junction, Hamilton and Trenton. The Mercer County Airport, located near the southwestern border of Hopewell Township, is fifteen minutes from the borough. Princeton, a cultural, historical, shopping and educations mecca, is close by. Within a few miles of the Borough are the corporate headquarters and offices of Bristol-Myers Squibb, Merrill Lynch, Lucent Technologies, Educational Testing Service and Janssen Pharmaceutica. The Delaware River and the artistic havens of Lambertville, NJ, and New Hope, PA, are nearby to the west.
Hopewell Borough recently celebrated the tri-centennial of its settlement during the first decade of the twenty-first century. Our town began as a small farming village in the heart of the Hopewell Valley and has evolved over the years into a unique community where people want to live, raise families, work and visit.
Hopewell Borough is more than a traditional, historic, small town. In addition to two working farms, our town is home to over 100 businesses, including modern communications, publishing, antiques and manufacturing firms. We are centrally located next to several metropolitan centers, including Princeton, Trenton, Philadelphia and New York.
