A Statement from Historic Hopewell Foundation

It is the endeavor of the Historic Hopewell Foundation (HHF) to interpret Hopewell history and preserve its historic properties. In our effort to tell a more complete history, we recognize the need to broaden our focus at Weston Manor to include the stories of its enslaved community.

We have begun the process of researching this history and updating our interpretive narrative and educational programming to incorporate the lives and contributions of the enslaved African and African-Americans. Through their skilled labor and artistry, these individuals and families were essential to the success of Weston and Colonial America.

HHF seeks to be relevant in our service to the greater Hopewell Community by undertaking this important mission and welcome documentation and accounts of oral history from descendants of Weston’s enslaved. This will help us to interpret their lives with more respect, accuracy and honesty, through the context of our small historic property. We look forward to a promising future for HHF, by partnering with the community in this process.
