Welcome to the Hopewell Depot
The Hopewell Depot train station was built in 1873 and served witness to the rise and fall of Hopewell Junction as a major railroad hub of Dutchess County. Three distinct railroads originally served Hopewell with extensive facilities such as freight yards, an engine house and signal tower.
After a fire nearly destroyed the building in 1986, local residents formed the Hopewell Depot Restoration Corp. to preserve and ultimately restore the station to it’s original form. Within the past two years, a concerted effort has transformed this vision into reality.
You are invited to travel back to the heyday of railroading by exploring our gallery and by joining us at the Hopewell Depot.
