• Community Life is Enriched by Sharing Our History in Hopewell, Virginia

    Since its founding in 1972, the Historic Hopewell Foundation has been successfully preserving and sharing the history of the Hopewell/Prince George area through the interpretation of beautiful historical properties located in Hopewell, Virginia.
    The Historic Hopewell Foundation was originally formed to preserve the main house of Weston Plantation located in Hopewell on the Appomattox River. Since then, the foundation has acquired two more historic properties in Hopewell, the St. Dennis Chapel and the Dr. Peter Eppes House, both located in the National Historic District of Hopewell. This year the foundation is elated to add 8 additional acres to its Weston property thanks to a generous gift from Mr. Earl M. Ferguson and Artcraft Management, Inc.
    Today’s growing nonprofit organization provides member gatherings as well as fun events for the public including a summer concert series facing the river and a popular lunch and lecture series held at Appomattox Regional Library. 
    Shoppers come from miles away to support the foundation by shopping in the boutique-style gift shop that sits attractively by the Manor, in one of two dependency buildings.
