The community of Hopewell, NJ is comprised of a borough and a township, with about 20,000 residents collectively. What began as a favorite hunting spot for Jonathan Stout and his friends from the Lenni Lenape tribe, grew into a small farming community surrounding the Hopewell Baptist Meeting in 1715. In 1890 the borough of Pennington was formed from portions of the Hopewell Township. Homebuyers find a lot to admire in Hopewell; located only an hour and twenty minutes from New York City, it remains a warm, charming rural town.
