Hopewell Borough, New Jersey
The Borough of Hopewell is located entirely within the township. The borough is very small with a population of approximately 2,000 people residing in less than a square mile. In fact, it only has four major roads that travel through it which include Route 518, Route 569, Princeton Avenue, Pennington Hopewell Road, and Greenwood Avenue. Because of its small size and population the municipal court only meets once a month.
