About Hopewell Township

Hopewell Township was formed in 1735 and at that time it was part of Lancaster County. The Township began at a line crossing at the spring in Newville and included most of what is now Franklin County. Later the Township was divided into two sections with the eastern portion called Hopewell and the western portion named Antrim (eventually changed to Franklin County). Hopewell was gradually reduced to its present size by the formation of Southampton Township and Mifflin Township in the 1790s.
