The Hope Historical Society & Museum are located at 323 High Street (Route 519 N) at the top of a stone bridge within the State and National Historic Register district in Hope Township, New Jersey. The tiny frame building was thought to be the original 1820s toll-keepers house. It was used as a private home until 1955 when it was restored by the Hope Historical Society and became the current museum and organizations headquarters.
Historical Society meetings with guest speakers of topics of historical interest are held April-November on the first Tuesday of the month, generally, at the Hope Community Center.
The museum is open on Sundays from 1-3 p.m. June through October. Volunteers are available to welcome you.
Displays include old photographs and local memorabilia, an 1850 map of Warren County, NJ, genealogy and historic documents, primitive furniture, Moravian history and more.
Visitors can also find brochures for a self-guided walking tour of the Village.
A town-wide juried Christmas Craft Market is held the first weekend in December.
Visit the Museum during the Craft Market to purchase items at our white elephant sale fundraiser.
