The Hopewell Museum was incorporated as the Hopewell Free Public Library and Museum Funding and Building Association in 1922. Its formation was brought about by the need for a building that can house the antique collection of Miss Sarah D. Stout. The Museum now bears a simpler name, The Hopewell Museum, and it houses Miss Stout?s collection as its central point.

The Museum and Public Library was first housed in a large, brownstone structure built in 1877 by Randolph Stout. The Library moved to its current location in 1965. In the following year, the Museum building was enlarged through the addition of a 2-story structure that was made possible with the help of Dr. David H. Hill. The bigger structure allowed the Museum to showcase its fine collections and house Dr. Hill?s superb collection of Southwestern Native American crafts as well.

Today, the Museum continues to feature these collections that include quilts, furniture, maps, photographs, tools, utensils, costumes, signs, weapons, deeds, and many other pieces that are related and significant to the story telling of the community?s history.
