If you are interested in following the demolition and rebuilding of the Hopewell Inn – long known as the Central Hotel during its 150 year history – click below on the HVHP’s daily update. Doug Dixon, founder and manager of the site has posted a plethora of photos documenting the demise of the structure and including details about its history.

Meanwhile, the other big news from the HVHP is that “Pennington Profile,” Margaret J. O’Connell’s comprehensive history of Pennington, originally published in 1966, is now available in a Digital Edition – as a free download from the Hopewell Valley History Project.

Dixon said this was a huge effort, supported by the Pennington Public Library, which owned the copyright on the out of-print book, and agreed to set it free as a digital download.
