Hope Historic Museum and Hope Historical Society - Hope, NJ
The Hope Historic Museum is 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 1820's 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 organization headquarters.
Displays include old photographs and local memorabilia, 1850 map of Warren County, genealogy and historic documents, primitive furniture, Moravian history and more.
Visitors can find brochures for a self-guided walking tour of the Village. A town-wide juried Craft Market is held the first weekend in December.
