An area of indisputable beauty, Hopewell Township began as a farming community and has retained much of its early rural charm. The homes are equally impressive, from stately mansions to newer construction. A number of corporations and research centers have been attracted to Hopewell Township, which surrounds the charming boroughs of Hopewell and Pennington. Both boroughs boast fine examples of colonial and Victorian architecture in their shopping districts and well-preserved vintage homes. Excellent schools, a strategic location, and natural beauty make the Hopewell Valley an idyllic place to call home. In addition to local recreational amenities, the Delaware River, Belle Mountain Ski Area, and historic Washington Crossing State Park are nearby.
