1. Hopewell Historic District Marker
Inscription. A borough from 1853 to 1914, Hopewell was a laboratory for progressive farming, milling, and educational practices. Samuel Dickey (1769-1835) was an agricultural innovator, and the Dickeys pioneered in establishing area schools. The family, spurred by available water power, developed this valley between 1815 and the 1870's. Much of its 19th-century character endures in the land and its buildings.
 
Erected 1996 by Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission.
