Hopewell, New Jersey, in Mercer County, is really two communities: the smaller historic Hopewell Borough with its walkable downtown, and larger, newer Hopewell Township with its larger lot sizes and newer estates. Hopewell Borough is filled with art galleries, antique shops, interesting eateries and restaurants, and charming homes that in some cases date back more than a century. Hopewell Pharmacy is one of the few compounding pharmacies in the area, and The Brothers Moon and Nomad Pizza are two of several popular eateries in the Borough. The Hopewell Borough website describes the Borough like this: 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.
Hopewell Borough was settled in 1703 and founded in 1891. It currently has a population of about 2000 people.
